The number of Abraham Lincoln studies and publications has steadily grown in the past year, as though the millennium requires those involved in Abraham Lincoln scholarship to reassess the man and his meaning to the nation. Nowhere is this reassessment more

evident than in the number of publications concerning Lincoln and cultural memorialization. Since Professor Merrill Peterson's 1994 groundbreaking publication, Lincoln in American Memory, there has been an increased awareness of the need to place Abraham Lincoln in the context of the cultural mind of America. Recent works by Richard Morris, Mark Reinhart, and Kirk Savage have all examined this experience.

In addition, Allen C. Guelzo has presented the field with a cutting-edge examination of Abraham Lincoln in the context of the American intellectual theme. Professing to be the first "intellectual biography" to treat Lincoln as a "serious thinker," Professor Guelzo has crafted a superb work that begs to answer the question in the negative, "Has the Lincoln Theme Been Exhausted?" Important manuscript discoveries add to the primary material on Abraham Lincoln and Mary Todd Lincoln. Newly discovered documents provide information about Lincoln's Black Hawk War experiences as well as his later granting of presidential pardons, while Mary Todd Lincoln's letters to her physician, Willis Danforth, focus on her life in Chicago in 1874, in the period immediately preceding her insanity hearing.

All of these discoveries, and more, have both been aided and negated by the Internet. It has become increasingly easy for the researcher on Abraham Lincoln to have access to these and other materials. Unfortunately, it is equally easy to access material and information that is of a dubious and even spurious nature concerning these studies. Already, as this bibliography shows, there are a number of credible articles and reviews published exclusively on Internet Web sites. The challenge for the Lincoln scholar is sifting through all of the material, a daunting task at best. That is why this author is calling for a conference where there can be discussion and eventual consensus on what materials and standards of publication need to be followed. This would allow the individual researcher and scholar to utilize the best and most current research published on the Internet. That the Lincoln academic community cannot police all of the publications is immaterial. Until a consensus is achieved, questionable research will continue to be produced and published on the Internet. If we do nothing to combat this proliferation, we will be doing a disservice, not only to ourselves, but to succeeding generations of Lincoln scholars and scholarship. Page  [End Page 18]
