Abstract:

The Dark Intrigue tells the incredible story of how several leaders of an American political party, during the Civil War, conferred cordially with enemy agents in a foreign country in a scheme to oust the president of the United States and enforce peace without victory. Most Northerners initially supported Abraham Lincoln's war against the Southern Confederacy to save the Union. But later, many turned against it when the death toll soared above a half million. Hoping to recapture the White House as a "peace party." leading Democrats met with Confederate agents in the summer of 1864 and discussed ways to end the war--not win it.
