For over forty years, The Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association has been the single most significant platform for research into, and about, Abraham Lincoln. Its articles and reviews abound in interest for anyone, from the oldest "Lincoln hand" to the newest student of our 16th President, and I never fail to look forward to the arrival of every issue. It has contributed immensely both to my own published work on Lincoln and to that of every other Lincoln scholar.

Allen Carl Guelzo, Princeton University

The Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association (JALA) is the only academic journal devoted exclusively to Lincoln scholarship. In addition to selected scholarly articles—on Lincoln in the popular media, for example, or British reactions to the War— the journal also features photographs and newly discovered Lincoln letters and documents.
