The footnotes from The Intimate World of Abraham Lincoln have been made available here with expanded context drawn directly from the primary and secondary source materials used in writing the book. The footnotes correspond to both the direct quotations found in the book and Dr. Tripp's own observations.

It is our hope that the additional context provided here will help readers appreciate Dr. Tripp's research, as well as provide an additional insight into the private life of Abraham Lincoln.

Note: The notes that begin with "From the text" come directly from the body of The Intimate World of Abraham Lincoln.
