Abraham Lincoln a Spiritualist, Now on Amazon Kindle




Was Abraham Lincoln a Spiritualist? This question has been asked time and again about our 16th President. This book profiles the mysterious and mystical side of Abraham Lincoln: his spiritual side. Lincoln’s interest in Spiritualism apparently separated him from many, but not all, as you will see in reading this Kindle book.

Medium Nettie Colburn was born in 1841 and in 1891 she published this book. It charts her experiences with President Lincoln during a difficult period of great upheaval in the United States. This book is a profound treasure, a spiritual profile of an intelligent man, a deep thinker, and a man dedicated to preserving the Union and inspiring greater humane treatment of all citizens.

Linda Pendleton has added an Introduction and Notes to this fascinating and credible story of how one young woman who had the gift to communicate with the Other Side, also had the good fortune to communicate with, and for, President Lincoln at a time when he greatly needed inspiration. It was during the 19th century when Spiritualism made an impact, not only in the United States, but around the world, and students of Civil War history should enjoy this look into life in the White House during Lincoln's time there.
