Start by marking The Lincoln No One Knows: The Mysterious Man Who Ran The Civil War as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. Before I begin, there are a few books with similar titles. The one I have read several times and recommend is Linoln the Unknow by Dale Carnegie. There is also one entitled The Lincoln Nobody Knows which I haven't read. I am a big fan of Lincoln since I became a Civil War enthusiast in junior high school. Webb Garrison attempts to give some insights into Abe Lincoln's motivations by looking at potentially influential events in his early life and background.

In "THE LINCOLN NO ONE KNOWS," Webb Garrison focused his life-long study of Abraham Lincoln upon the mysteries that continue to bewilder those who try to understand the man.

Meanwhile I'll look into Broadwater and other sources. Garrison has written many books, some of which get into topics not covered by your average Civil War author, so writing him off as a "trivia disseminator" is perhaps a little far reaching. Besides, most of his works cover general and specific themes and are not about what you refer to as "trivia".

According to those who knew him, Lincoln was a man of many faces. We admire Lincoln today as an American folk hero

According to those who knew him, Lincoln was a man of many faces. In repose, he often seemed sad and gloomy. But when he began to speak, his expression changed. By the time he ran for president he was a wealthy man, earning a large income from his law practice and his many investments. As for the nickname Abe, he hated it. No one who knew him well ever called him Abe to his face. They addressed him as Lincoln or Mr. Lincoln. We admire Lincoln today as an American folk hero. During the Civil War, however, he was the most unpopular president the nation had ever known. His critics called him a tyrant, a hick, a stupid baboon who was unfit for his office.

In THE LINCOLN NO ONE KNOWS, Webb Garrison focused his life-long study of Abraham Lincoln upon the mysteries that continue to bewilder those who try to understand the man. If Lincoln was against slavery, why did he countermand early efforts to free slaves? How did this high-income attorney become packaged as the "rail-splitter candidate: for president? 

Written in Garrison's warm, conversational style, this unique book reveals the depth and complexity of one of America's greatest presidents.

This book is mistitled because it contains absolutely nothing that is new and certainly nothing that is not presented in better fashion elsewhere. It also lacks any sources, which grants Garrison the freedom to embellish what he doesn't know, e.g., his claim that lawyer Lincoln earned $5,000 every year during the decade of the 1850s.

Very interesting book on Lincoln that asks some very important questions about his upbringing, views and decisions that affect us all. From the basic question as to who was his grandfather (Thomas Jefferson? JC Calhoun? Jefferson Davis's dad?) to why did he allow the Constitution to be trampled? Why did he allow so many opposition leaders to be arrested? Did he have the legal authority to require conscripts? Paper money? Was the entry of Nevada as a state legal? Was West Virginia legal? Many more questions raised in each quick 5 page chapters by leading scholars.

Each chapter by themselves is quick and easy reading and very interesting.

Webb Garrison, a free-lance writer who specializes in American history, has dared to question our most famous president. Not surprisingly, his book has not been well received. Many people have lifted Lincoln up on a pedestal and are unwilling to even consider the possibility Lincoln's actions were less than the best. Garrison reveals information that will be new and surprising to most Americans. For example, Garrison discusses Lincoln's unconstitutional suspension of the writ of Habeas Corpus without congressional support, his illegal calling for volunteers, and his rather racist views.

Why only four stars? For several reasons. First of all, he gives too much time and attention to trivial matters such as Lincoln's marriage, his childhood accident, and his physical appearance. Not enough time is spent on how Lincoln's presidency still affects us today. Secondly, this book is quite unlikely to convince anyone who is not already skeptical of Lincoln's actions. Garrison does not make an extremely compelling case; his repeated reference to Lincoln's life as being mysterious is sure to bug some people. While the negative reviews of this book are silly and often inaccurate, it is worth noting that the book didn't impress nearly as many people as Thomas DiLorenzo's books on the same subject. I would recommend both of DiLorenzo's books on Lincoln as a good starting place for a second look at Lincoln, rather than this book.

In closing, while this book is worth reading, it is less thought provoking and persuasive than other books on this same subject. It certainly should not be the first unflattering book on Lincoln you read. But if you are open-minded on the subject and have already read other books that lean in this direction, this book would be well worth owning, even if only as a reference.

Lincoln is not only our most revered and important president, but he is also one of the most mysterious. Surely no other American president served during a period more critical to this nation's survival. Thus, no other president has been more studied, researched, and chronicled. Yet, many mysteries and questions remain about this enigmatic man and leader. This remarkable book, The Lincoln No One Knows-- by Webb Garrison, renders a remarkable feat of exploring 38 mysteries of this great man. Not all are explained, rather more like "examined" . . . nor providen beyond a doubt. However, anyone who is interested in history, Lincoln, the Civil War era, or just one of the most remarkable men of all time . . . needs to consider reading this book.

Some may find the book ofensive.As Lincoln is one of the greatest American Presidents and heros of all time,but I think to read this book you need to keep an open mind.
Pople I think do not like for when histrorians and such dig through his hstory and prefer to enjoy the egnima that the man we all love is known today.
Having said that I would be weary reading this book if you have not read or done lots of resarch on the man.
I give this book three stars mostly becaouse I knew alot of the information that the book had ,but the point of view the author was giving was intersting.

This book is an excellent addition to anyone's library of books about this critical figure in American history. Unlike some reviewers, I actually bought, and read this book, and bothered to research some of the authors surprising assertions.
It amazes me how hysterical and insulting people will get when faced with facts about something contrary to what they are familiar with. So many Lincoln quotes, for instance, have long been known to be sheer fabrication; mythology, simply untrue and not originating from Lincoln at all. So many assertions about Lincoln's intentions and beliefs have been made that are utterly contrary to what Lincoln himself said and wrote. As with any historical figure, there are people that idolize and create myths, and there are those who are real historians, who actually do their homework. This book is a product of the work of a person in the latter category.
Shocking and contrary to what we were told as school children about Lincoln, the story of the real Lincoln is much more interesting and base than the myth makers would have us believe. Lincoln was, after all, a politician, a Statist, and a Federalist. He declared martial law, took away citizens basic constitutional rights, jailed newspaper reporters and statesmen that disagreed with him, and went against the founding father's explicit intentions as well as the Constitution and Bill of Rights in creating a massive, unrestricted, powerful centralized federal government. Lincoln, as it turns out, was no saint after all. The real story is always grittier and more interesting than the fantasy. If you want a taste of the real Lincoln, and if you are capable of dealing with some unpleasant facts about the man and the legend, read this book, it's a good start.
