Summary "In February 1861 newly elected President Abraham Lincoln set out on a triumphant 2,000 mile cross-country railroad trip that would take him to his inauguration in Washington, D.C. At the same time, a band of fanatic southern Confederate sympathizers decided to stop Lincoln from reaching Washington and taking office. Furious because the new president's desire to end slavery threatened their way of life, they devised a secret plan: Lincoln would be murdered by an assassin's bullet in Baltimore. But as rushing railway trains carried Abraham Lincoln towards death, Detective Allan Pinkerton learned of the plot-and set out to save the president. Dive into this incredibly fun and suspenseful true story and learn what other history books never told you: the secret of Lincoln's great escape"-- Provided by publisher.
