As 1862 dawned, the American republic was at death’s door. The survival of the country depended on the judgment and resilience of Abraham Lincoln, the unschooled frontier lawyer who had recently been elected president. Acclaimed author David Von Drehle has created both a deeply human portrait of America’s greatest president and a dramatic narrative about our most fateful year.
