The story of the Civil War's record number of living former and current presidents, and how the ex-Presidents' Club--for and against Abraham Lincoln (but mostly against)--maneuvered, seceded, plotted, advised, and aided during the Civil War while Lincoln navigated the minefield they created. CSpan will be videotaping this talk for future programming. ABOUT THE AUTHOR
