Abraham Lincoln was the only US President in history whose entire administration was bound by war. In spite of his limited military experience Lincoln read, studied and consulted with military figures. Those efforts enhanced his skills and performance as Commander-in-Chief enabling him to bring the country thru it's most difficult period.Famed historian and Pulitzer prize winning author James McPherson shares this extraordinary feat in his new book:Tried By War.
