  1. Mr. Jacobi, what book most influenced you as you became a student of Lincoln and did Dorothy and Philip Kunhardt's Twenty Days and Stefan Lorant's Life of Lincoln influence you?

    Thank you,

    Samuel Black Dayton, Ohio

    1. Hi Samuel! I have a reply from Jan: "It's Herndon's Informants, edited by Douglas Wilson and Rodney Davis. I particularly remember that Stefan Lorant is probably the first Lincoln author that I remember from my early days…"

      Great Question, Samuel! Sorry we didn't get to answer on air, but thank you for watching!

  2. Watching this in Dayton, Ohio and this a great interview thank you. I can't wait to get the book witch I ordered today.
    Thanks again Samuel Black
    Love the Abraham Lincoln bookstore
