The Tarheel Lincoln
     North Carolina Origins of "Honest" Abe
Copyright 2003 by Jerry Goodnight and Richard Eller

     As one of our greatest presidents, the very atmosphere that surrounds the legacy of Abraham Lincoln borders on legend.  To some, even the mere suggestion that Abraham Lincoln was born anywhere other than where traditional  history books tell us might seem absurd. 

     However, there is much about the 16th president we still do not know, even though countless books on him have been written.  Among the mysteries of the man are his beginnings, which include persistent stories of his illegitimate birth in North Carolina,  and the evidence that suggests Thomas Lincoln was given a ready-made family.

Looking for Lincoln:
     Amid the Rumors, Legends, & Lies
Copyright 2008 by Jerry Goodnight

     Two hundred years after Abraham Lincoln's birth, there are still families other than the Lincolns who claim Abe was one of them, while people in states other than Kentucky claim he was born elsewhere.

     Who were Lincoln's parents? What kind of man would become such a legendary figure? Where was he born? When will DNA testing be used to prove who he really was? Why do the rumors, legends, and lies persist?
