Lincoln Legends free pdf In "Lincoln Legends: Myths, Hoaxes, and Confabulations Associated with Our Greatest President", Lincoln expert Edward Steers Jr. examines the history of fourteen longstanding beliefs surrounding our sixteenth president and juxtaposes them with the existing corroborating and contradicting evidence.
