Collection Description

This collection consists primarily of newspaper recollections of Abraham Lincoln made by McLean County residents.  Lincoln scholars are examining anew the wealth of Lincoln reminiscence oftentimes ignored or dismissed by previous generations of historians. That said, these recollections must be treated with due circumspection, given the fallibility of memory and the all-too-human tendency toward embellishment, to say nothing of outright falsehood.
