The third volume in ABRAHAM LINCOLN: THE WAR YEARS picks up the story in the spring of 1864 with Lincoln's efforts to get Nevada admitted into the Union, an important political goal. It chronicles that year's battles, notably Grant's march from the Wilderness to Richmond and Farragut's naval victory in Mobile Bay.
On the political front, Lincoln won reelection. He even found time for the theater and for Shakespeare recitals.
"This volume in the epic biography of our 16th president shows Lincoln's character under great stress. He gave a noble example to the nation then and now." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)
