Being raised in a poor farming family, suffering the loss of an older sibling, receiving little formal education, and experiencing a spiritual reawakening as a youth helped shape Lincolns life and Josephs. The service given to fellow men and country, each marrying the woman he loved despite opposition from her family, and a rise to leadership kept Joseph and Abraham on the same path. And in the end, they shared a common destiny each died a martyr for the principles he believed in.This book unveils the parallels between the lives of these remarkable men, from their humble beginnings to their rise from obscurity, one to head the restored Church, the other to lead the greatest nation on earth.
