Exciting chronicle of Abraham Lincoln's twelve-day journey from Springfield, Illinois to his inauguration in Washington. The train route took the president-elect through Baltimore, a city deeply sympathetic to the southern cause and seething with resentment over his election. When evidence of a sophisticated assassination plot while he passed through Baltimore surfaced, one of the most daring -- and little known -- exploits in American history took place to assure Lincoln's safety. An prime example of history proving itself as tense and suspenseful as the most fanciful thriller. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
