Originally published in 1943, Daugherty sees Lincoln through the eyes of an American artist and poet. A Caldecott and Newbery honored author and illustrator, Daughtery's Abraham Lincoln is:
'It is a picture of a tumbling, surging young nation with the pioneer states knocking at the door, the era of the coonskin cap and the French brocade. Across its broad canvas pass the lynx-eyed backwoodsmen, the crinolined belles of the plantation South, the slick politicians of wartime Washington in the 1860s, the desperate fighters in blue and gray. It is the sound of battle, and the bands playing 'Dixie,' and the march of tired feet and the trumpets calling.'
