Abraham Lincoln and Mexico gives educators and students access to archival documents about Lincoln's support for Mexico, a legacy that history textbooks often ignore or distort.
As such, the book with its 137-page appendix of original
documents is like holding a reference library in students’ hands. Based on the documents, the book examines Lincoln's
opposition to the Mexican-American War as a freshman congressman and his
support as president to help Mexico defeat French occupation forces.
The award-winning eBook version is a breakthrough in supplemental classroom materials because it contains hundreds of active hyperlinks to reference sources. Now, the Lincoln and Mexico Project (LAMP) is offering the eBook version to students at a huge discount from the retail price.
