In this masterpiece, political biographer Doris Kearns Goodwin gives a unique account of Abraham Lincoln personal and political life. She couples the life of Lincoln with the stories of the remarkable men who were his rivals for the 1860 presidential nomination: New York senator William H Seward - Ohio Governor Salmon P Chase - Missouri's distinguished elder statesmen Edward Bates. Following his election, he decides to bring all three men into his cabinet. We follow their childhood, their education, their family life, their personality, and their political careers.
