Amidst all of his other responsibilities as a lawyer, politician, and father, Abraham Lincoln found time to write. In fact, he wrote quite a bit, and it took scholars decades to assemble the majority of his various published (and unpublished) writings. After working on bringing together his writings, the Abraham Lincoln Association published "The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln" in 1953. In total, there were eight volumes, and they included Lincoln's correspondence, speeches, and other writings. Recently, the University of Michigan's Digital Library Production Service digitized all eight volumes and placed them online here for the benefit of historians, rhetoricians, and those who are generally enamored of the 16th President. Visitors can perform simple searches, boolean searches, and proximity searches to their hearts' content. Also, they can look over other documents that were digitized for the collection, including Paul M. Angle's "Here I Have Lived: A History of Lincoln's Springfield".
