1864 : Lincoln at the gates of history by Charles Bracelen Flood( file )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 414 libraries worldwide
At the beginning of 1864, the Civil War was far from won; terrible and bloody Union setbacks and casualties lay ahead. Abraham Lincoln was facing a re-election battle as some northern Democrats were ready to start peace talks that could leave the Confederacy a separate slaveholding American nation and as his secretary of the treasury, Salmon P. Chase, challenged him for the Republican nomination. But by the end of the year, the war's end was in sight, and slavery was on the verge of extinction. Despite all the turmoil of war and political infighting, Lincoln also set the stage for a new era of westward expansion. He shaped the decades to come through laws and subsidies that propelled railroads westward, by the Homestead Act that offered western lands to immigrant farmers and by the Act to Encourage Immigration that enabled 615,000 men, women, and children to arrive in America during the Civil War. As the year ended, John Wilkes Booth, who stalked Lincoln throughout 1864, was only a few weeks away from assassinating our greatest president

Amid the dust, death, and chaos of Iraq, an American soldier on a routine patrol is killed by an unseen enemy. It's a tragedy but not a crime - until it's linked to the bizarre death of a decorated four-star general who happens to be the dead man's father, and the son-in-law of history's most feared and powerful U.S. vice president. Major Vin Cooper of Air Force Special Investigations is the kind of loose cannon no commanding officer can completely control - or survive without. Cooper's a man whose capacity to absorb grief is matched only by his ability to dish it out. And this case - which will be either his most important or his last - has plenty of both. Scarred by battle and a recent divorce, Cooper answers to no one but his own tough-as-nails female general. She knows there's no one as relentless, as insubordinate, and as effective in prying out the truth as Cooper - no matter where it leads or who it angers. Reluctantly paired with Special Agent Anna Masters, Cooper begins his search at the scene of a suspicious crash at Ramstein Air Base in Germany. There they uncover a trail of inexplicable "accidental" deaths that leads from the war-torn streets of Baghdad to sex slavery in Latvia and a marriage that began in the White House Rose Garden and disintegrated into bitterness and infidelity. And with every step they take, Cooper and Masters come closer to the shocking truth about the biggest and most murderous lie of all
