Rise to Greatness: Abraham Lincoln and America's Most Perilous Year
by Von Drehle, David
As 1862 dawned, the American republic was at death's door. The federal government appeared overwhelmed, the U.S. Treasury was broke, and the Union's top general was gravely ill. The Confederacy?with its booming economy, expert military leadership, and commanding position on the battlefield?had a clear view to victory. To a remarkable extent, the survival of the country depended on the judgment, cunning, and resilience of the unschooled frontier lawyer who had recently been elected president.
