This is for anyone interested in the Shakers, their unique way of life, and their world famous furniture and architecture. For Civil War buffs, or for anyone fascinated by the rich life of Abraham Lincoln, the book takes a look at Lincoln from a different point of view - the Commander-in-Chief of America's bloodiest war seen through the eyes of America's first conscientious objectors. The book also includes brief up-to-date descriptions of all Shaker sites, listed state by state from Maine to Florida. It describes the museums and restored villages, archeological sites, and the all-but-forgotten sites at which few if any traces of the Shakers remain.
