Title
Giant in the Shadows: The Life of Robert T. Lincoln
Summary
Robert T. Lincoln was Abraham and Mary's oldest and last-surviving son, yet little has been published about the lawyer, businessman and statesman who lived during one of the most progressive and dynamic eras in U.S. history. In his new book, Jason Emerson, after nearly 10 years of research - much of it done at the Library of Congress - draws upon previously undiscovered materials to offer the first truly definitive biography of this son of the 16th president.
Event Date
July 16, 2013
Notes
-  Jason Emerson is currently at work on a book-length history of Robert Lincoln's Vermont home, Hildene, and will soon publish a new book, "Lincoln's Lover: Mary Lincoln in Poetry." He also has contributed a chapter examining the relationship between Mary and Robert Lincoln to "The Mary Lincoln Enigma," a book of essays on Mary Lincoln.
