Notes on McPherson’s Abraham Lincoln

I just read James M. McPherson's 2009 biography of Abraham Lincoln. The book, Abraham Lincoln, is very short. Excluding the preface and notes, it's about 66 small pages of generously spaced text. That's my kind of book!

Because it is so short, it might be thought that it isn't worth the trouble to take any notes. One could easily re-read during a lunch break, say. But surely that only makes taking notes that much easier. So here they are.

All page numbers refer to the 2009 Oxford University Press hardcover edition (in case there are others).
