A most consequential election
Abby Kelley Foster arrived in Springfield, Illinois, with the fate of the nation on her mind. Her fame as an abolitionist speaker had spread west and she knew that her first speech in the city would make headlines.
Abraham Lincoln knew his chances of winning were good. All he had to do was stay above the fray of the slavery debate. The last thing he needed was a fiery abolitionist appearing in town. When her speech sparks violence, he suspects that his political rivals have conspired against him.
President James Buchanan is one such rival. As his term ends and his power crumbles, he gathers his advisers at the White House to make one last move that might derail Lincoln’s campaign, steal the election and throw America into chaos.
"An illuminating and unusual read... Give this to fans of courtroom drama and politics."—Booklist
