§ 11. John G. Nicolay and John Hay; Abraham Lincoln, a History.


Apart from all other works on the Civil War is that which appeared with the title Abraham Lincoln, a History (10 vols., 1890), by John George Nicolay and John Hay, both of whom had been private secretaries of the war president. In completeness of treatment, clearness of statement, and fair discussion of the men and problems that Lincoln encountered, it is one of the best historical works of the generation in which it was written. Of the joint authors Nicolay (1832–1901) was an historian of unusual breadth of view and industry while Hay 8  (1838–1905) was noted for his clear and natural style.   25
