Abraham Lincoln and Joseph Smith: How Two Contemporaries Changed the Face of American History (Paperback) *
Author/Artist: Ron L. Andersen
What could Abraham Lincoln and controversial Mormon founder Joseph Smith possibly have in common? According to Lincoln Leadership Society president Ron Andersen, more than you would think. Using historical records from Illinois, where Smith and Lincoln were living in the 1840s, this book shows you new sides to the men, including their surprisingly similar views on God and their involvement with each others' politics. Find out how two young “backwoods” boys crossed paths and led parallel lives before each was martyred for his cause in this exhaustively researched dual biography.
