AbrahamLincolnALifeMichaelBurlingameMichael Burlingame’s massive two-volume biography of Abraham Lincoln is being offered for free online at Knox College in unedited manuscript form (ht to Mike Kienzler of the Abraham Lincoln Observer).  This is stunning news.  A two-volume book which currently goes for over $100 at Amazon.com is now available to researchers everywhere, even those who may not have the money available to get their own copy of the book.  Kudos to Knox College for offering the book in this format.  The first volume is the only one available at the moment, but the second should be ready shortly.

I’ve blogged about the Lincoln-Douglas Debates podcasts available at the Knox College web site in the past.  They are absolutely worth a look as well.
