Four Great Americans: Washington, Franklin, Webster, Lincoln. A Book for Young Americans

Four Great Americans: Washington, Franklin, Webster, Lincoln. A Book for Young Americans by James Baldwin
By: (1841-1925)

Written for children, James Baldwin’s history of Washington, Franklin, Webster, and Lincoln brings these men to life in a way that will be interesting for adults as well. The stories touch on the little humanities of the great men, rather than dwelling on the great works and great events of their lifetimes, without ignoring the latter.
