Ad description

On May 18, 1860, in the midst of the nominating battle at the Republican National Convention, four contenders–Lincoln, Seward, Chase and Bates–wait in their hometowns for the results of the balloting in Chicago. These political visionaries’ national reputations towered over Lincoln’s. When they vied with Lincoln for the presidential nomination and lost, each was astonished by the defeat by this relatively obscure and inexperienced prairie lawyer. Through short narratives on each of the players, we view private and public life in America as the slavery issue splits the country. By the 1850s, the four have intertwined with the creation of a sectional Republican party, then secession, and ultimately, civil war. Each of these men position themselves to lead the nation. That Lincoln emerges to win the race is the result of character traits forged by life experiences that separated him from his rivals and provided him with advantages that were unrecognized at the time. On March 4, 1861, the day of Lincoln’s inauguration, having summoned his rivals for the presidential nomination to assume the highest posts in his Cabinet, Lincoln proceeds to effectively marshal their diverse talents to winning the Civil War. With fresh insights into the dynamics of 19th-century Washington social life gleaned from the papers of women in the Seward and Chase families, as well as with new research on the First Lady’s service as a volunteer in Washington hospitals, we discover that Lincoln was "married" more intimately to several of his Cabinet members during the war than he was to Mary. In terms of the time he spent with them during the day, the long, anxious hours at night waiting for the telegraph to report news from the battlefront, the moments of relaxation shared, the stories exchanged, the emotions expressed, this is ultimately a story of Abraham Lincoln’s mastery of men.
