    Filed under: Lincoln, Abraham, Abraham Lincoln: A Legacy of Freedom (Washington: U.S. Department of State, Bureau of International Information Programs, ), ed. by George Clack and Michael Jay Friedman (PDF at ).   Thanks to Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis, the book Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln by Doris Kearns Goodwin is back on the best-seller list. Includes 19 Illustrations and 6 Maps. Mr. Lincoln's Navy, almost a non-existent force at the start of the war, achieved with marked success; the offshore blockade of the Confederacy, taking control of the Mississippi River, and the protection of Yankee commerce on the high seas.   I suppose this could also go in the book review forum, but I suspect the conversation, if there is any, will delve on the naval war. One of the three books I got for Christmas was Craig Symonds' 'Lincoln and his Admirals', which is an interesting and well-written look at how Lincoln evolved.
