New Book by David von Drehle:
Rise to Greatness Abraham Lincoln and America’s Most Perilous Year By David von Drehle
Rise to Greatness: Abraham Lincoln and America’s Most Perilous Year tells the electrifying story of Abraham Lincoln's rise to greatness and reveals why 1862 was the most perilous year in our nation’s history.
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 had a clear view to victory, and the survival of the country depended on its newly elected president. With deeply personal insight and dramatic narration, David von Drehle shows how twelve months later through the cataclysm of the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln emerged as a singular leader and was able to bring the nation through its darkest hour.
David von Drehle, critically-acclaimed author of Triangle: The Fire That Changed America, brings 1862 back to life through the eyes of America’s greatest president.
