“…fascinating and exhaustively researched, [with a] compelling narrative and accessible writing style. ['Lincoln in New Orleans'] offers a great deal of illumination on Lincoln's river life and on 1828 New Orleans. And [Campanella] does it in such an absorbing and accessible way that Lincoln in New Orleans is bound to strike a chord with readers, both in the Crescent City and beyond.”
