A Complete Annotated Reference to Hundreds of Historical Sites Visited by Abraham Lincoln. By Ralph Garry. Published by Carroll & Graf Publishers, New York. First Edition, 2011. Hard cover with dust jacket. 480 pages, index, illustrated. Excellent.

From Abe Lincoln's law offices to the sixteenth president's White House office; from the address in Springfield, Illinois, where he and Mary Todd made up after a premarital spat, to the window he jumped out of in order to avoid a quorum call in the Illinois General Assembly, to the spot where he first heard the news of Robert E. Lee's surrender, this unprecedented volume of Lincoln lore takes you there. In it, Ralph Gary, avid Lincoln scholar, also answers dozens of lingering questions about Lincoln's life as he sifts for the truth among the many disputes that continue to rage among Lincoln experts and enthusiasts.

A lifetime member of notable Lincoln societies, Gary has scoured county courthouse records and the writings of Lincoln's contemporaries as well as thousands of other books written on Lincoln's life and work to compile the most complete and up to date guide to Lincoln historical sites ever published. Included in the book are detailed maps and diagrams of the cities and buildings that Lincoln called home, so that Lincoln admirers, Civil War buffs, and all lovers of American history can readily walk in the footsteps of one of America's most popular presidents.

A comprehensive and engaging guide, "Following in Lincoln's Footsteps" not only provides all the essential places and dates in the remarkable life and career of the frontier lawyer who became president but also relates, often with little known details, the many surprising stories these historical sites tell.

Ralph Gary is a member of the Lincoln Forum, the Abraham Lincoln Association and the Surratt Society.

Reviews;

"Ralph Gary's guide to all of the sites relating to Abraham Lincoln is by far the most comprehensive and useful guide for those who study Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War. I know this to be true as I have used it in preparing for a tour of Lincoln sites in Illinois. It is well researched, beautifully written, and a much needed reference work in the field of Lincoln studies." Frank J. Williams, Rhode Island Supreme Court Chief Justice, and Chair, The Lincoln Forum.

"Far more than a mere guidebook to historic sites, Ralp Gary's exhaustively researched volume is a captivating biography of Lincoln, taking him from Kentucky to Indiana to Illinois to Washington and vividly reminding readers of all the towns and cities he visited, even briefly, along the way. Engagingly written and well organized, the book belongs in the glove compartment or bookshelf of every Lincoln enthusiast who wants either a map of Lincoln's path through life, or a delightful review of the way he lived it." Harold Holzer, Co-Chair, U.S. Lincoln Bicentennial Commission.
