About this Item

Paperback. 163 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 5.9in. x 0.6in.This is a fictional account of what Abraham Lincoln had to endure after having been kidnapped by John Wilkes Booth and his gang on March 31, 1864. It is a story which has never been written before. The novel is based on the historical truth that John Wilkes Booth had recruited several people to kidnap Lincoln in 1864 and by so doing, end the war in favor of the Southern, Confederate, insurrection. While in captivity, Lincoln narrowly escapes being drowned while crossing the Potomac River in a killer storm, barely escapes a lynch mob and fire in Petersburg, Virginia, a gunshot wound in the abdomen (resulting in a major operation by a Confederate surgeon), and an escape from Booth and his gang with the assistance of one of Booths former lieutenants, Lincolns female nurse and General Robert E. Lee. Propitiously, on April 26, 1864, Lee who has come to realize Booth is insane, returns Lincoln and his entourage to the custody of General U. S. Grant under a flag of truce at the front lines in Hanover Junction, Virginia. Abraham Lincoln arrives in Washington before a deadline set by the U. S. Congress and Supreme Court expires. Had he not returned in time the office of President would have been declared vacant, and General George McClellan would have been virtually unopposed for the presidency of the U. S. in November, 1864. Everyone knew McClellan had pledged to stop the unpopular war, which would have allowed the South to secede, thereby creating two nations: the USA and the CSA.
