Below is a sample of new documents written by Abraham Lincoln or with substantial endorsements written by Lincoln that do not appear in The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln (1953-55) or either of its supplements (1974, 1990). Because the Papers of Abraham Lincoln has a much broader scope, the project has also scanned thousands of letters to Lincoln and other documents not included in the Collected Works.
