Lincoln Slept Here - RJNorton - 04-03-2016 09:22 AM

Ed Steers just notified me of a new book. Ed writes:

"I have just posted a new book, along with Kieran McAuliffe, on titled, "Lincoln Slept Here." It is the first in a series covering the seven generations of Lincolns in America. Several more books will follow covering all phases of Lincoln's life and death."

Kudos Ed and Kieran!

Sounds great and any Steers-McAuliffe-cooperation unbeatable!

Wow! That sounds great.

Ed has been tracing the Lincoln family roots and treks as long as I have known him (almost forty years), so this book has to be a labor of love. Kieran's talents in graphics and design (as well as history) make him the perfect partner.

This looks great! I am looking forward to reading this!

RE: Lincoln Slept Here - LincolnMan - 04-04-2016 07:05 AM

I preordered it just now on Amazon.

RE: Lincoln Slept Here - Eva Elisabeth - 04-04-2016 02:08 PM

Absolutely great cover design, too! (And I appreciate it's a paperback!)

Sounds like this will be an interesting read! I might have to preorder it too. I love the cover design too, Eva!

RE: Lincoln Slept Here - LincolnMan - 04-05-2016 03:39 PM

My copy has been shipped.

Re.: "Several more books will follow covering all phases of Lincoln's life and death" - Roger, do you have any information on how many, and what the others each will cover? And about when they will be published? I am very tempted to get this but probably cannot get all the several ones due to thight budget, thus will have to decide.

RE: Lincoln Slept Here - RJNorton - 04-06-2016 04:37 AM

Eva, I will contact Ed and Kieran and see if I can find out.

RE: Lincoln Slept Here - LincolnMan - 04-06-2016 07:10 AM

We look forward to what you might find out Roger.

RE: Lincoln Slept Here - Ed Steers - 04-06-2016 11:39 AM

I am not sure how many books will follow, but the next one covers The Birthplace, The Birth Cabin. Fact or Fiction, The Boyhood home, Knob Creek, and Nancy Hanks. The third book will feature Indiana, the fourth Illinois, the fifth On to Washington, President Lincoln and finally, The Assassination. Probably five total. We will try to keep the price as low as possible. In the course of my many travels to Lincoln sites I accumulated approximately 8,000 slides and prints. The object of these book is to utilize the best of the lot and take the viewer to places they may never get to see live. I believe the Redman cemetery is off limits as is the pioneer cemetery at Fort Knox. We are publishing using createspace because we have complete control over design and the price of print-on-demand is substantially lower than with a trade press, thus $18 for the first book. Hope this helps. Please ask any questions you may have. My email is

Thanks Ed, sounds like an exciting project. This is something I will be looking foreword to.

RE: Lincoln Slept Here - LincolnMan - 04-06-2016 04:09 PM

Amazon has notified me in a text that the book is delivered. I'm at work right now so I haven't seen it yet.
Dr. Steers thank you for all that you have put in towards you books past and in the future.
