Abstract:

When the Lincolns arrive in Washington in 1861, the country is breaking apart. The country's president-elect is unknown, untested, and mistrusted. His wife, the daughter of a Southern slave owner, is suspected of being a Confederate sympathizer. As Lincoln leads a confused and frightened people through the most terrible conflict in their history, disaster strikes in his own home: Willie Lincoln - the child Mary says will be the hope and stay of her old age - dies. Mary, though tormented by her grief, visits wounded soldiers and helps slaves who have made their way to the North. Losing her grip on sanity, she also turns to spiritualists for comfort. Her husband, bowed down with sorrow, never loses sight of the tragedy consuming the nation. On January 1, 1863 the sixteenth president issues the Emancipation Proclaimation liberating millions of Americans from bondage. The move turns the Civil War from a conflict over union into a struggle for freedom.
