We have selected Abraham Lincoln Research Site as the world's very best website on Abraham Lincoln.
The Abraham Lincoln Research Site website is produced by Roger Norton, who taught American history in middle school in Downers Grove, Illinois, USA, for 28 years before retiring to Florida.
The Abraham Lincoln Research Site is organized into three main sections: Research Site, Abraham Lincoln Assassination, and Mary Todd Lincoln. There is also a section of Lincoln Links. The Abraham Lincoln Assassination section gives detail on the background to the assassination, and the likely motives of John Wilkes Booth.
The website contains extensive information about the life and personality of Abraham Lincoln and his wife Mary Todd Lincoln, including his favorite poem, sketches of Abraham Lincoln, and information about his dog Fido. There are numerous quotations from Lincoln, including:
'If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I do the very best I know how - the very best I can; and I mean to keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right, what's said against me won't amount to anything. If the end brings me out wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference.'
