Research Guide

This online research guide offers some helpful suggestions for learning more about Lincoln’s Writings, and especially for preparing good, close readings of Lincoln documents, using only freely available Internet resources.  Of course, there are many more essential sources available either behind paywalls or only in print, but we have tried in this space to feature only the types of sources that would be accessible to everyone, anywhere in the world.  Last updated June 2016
