Three Miles for Holiday Guide





dock3For the historian, preservationist, and lover of presidents.

David Bruce Smith’s fictitious diary creates a unique and engaging tale about Abraham Lincoln, his family, the history of the Soldiers’ Home and Washington, DC during the Civil War. In the leather bound, limited-edition book the author conjures a fictitious veteran of the Mexican-American War who is subsequently asked to guard the President at the White House, and the Soldiers’ Home—the “Camp David” of the times where Lincoln spent one quarter of his presidency, and is believed to have written a draft of the Emancipation Proclamation. Told in an intimate diary form, “Three Miles from Providence” starts at Lincoln’s inaugural in 1861 and concludes seven generations later in 2008. During the intervening 137 years, the reader learns what happens—and what doesn’t—at the Soldiers’ Cottage. Includes illustrations by the acclaimed artist Clarice Smith.
