    Lincoln's Boys A timely and intimate look into Lincoln’s White House through the lives of his two closest aides and confidantes. Lincoln’s official secretaries John Hay and John Nicolay enjoyed more access, witnessed more history, and knew Lincoln better than anyone outside of the president’s immediate family.   No American president has enjoyed as intimate a relationship with the soldiers in his army as did the man they called "Father Abraham." In Lincoln's Men, historian William C. Davis draws on thousands of unpublished letters and diaries — the voices of the volunteers — to tell the hidden story of how a new and untested president became "Father" throughout both the army and the North as a whole.4/4(1).
