Primary Source
Mrs. Bixby, Boston, Massachusetts:

DEAR MADAM: I have been shown in the files of the War Department a statement of the Adjutant-General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how weak and fruitless must be any words of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the alter of freedom.

Yours very sincerely and respectfully,
Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln led the country at one of its most difficult times. The American Civil War was a time of great heartache for many families. They lost their loved ones on the battlefield, and both sides were fighting for the same country. Lincoln felt overwhelmed by the pride and dignity that many of the soldiers exhibited. He would write personal letters to family members to thank them for the service their loved ones gave to the country.
I can compare and contrast one author's presentation of events with that of another.
*Primary and Secondary sources.
