Abraham Lincoln: Preserving the Union

Honest, eloquent, and courageous, he risked everything to save a young America from self-destruction - and paid the ultimate price. "Abraham Lincoln: Preserving The Union" tells the complete story of the 16th president, from the rough and rustic childhood that forged his beliefs to the tough political campaign that won him the presidency. Historians examine the difficult leadership choices of his turbulent first term, as well as his bouts with depression and his troubled marriage to Mary Todd. Finally, experts untangle a web of murder and kidnapping plots to reveal the truth behind the complex conspiracy that ended in Lincoln's assassination. Featuring period photography and excerpts from Lincoln's famous writings, "Biography" presents an extraordinary look at the complex leader who successfully brought the nation through the Civil War with the Union still intact.
