Ole, Have you read Doris Kearns Goodwin Pulitzer winner, Team of Rivals?  By far the best study of Lincoln's political journey, as well as of Cameron, Chase, Seward, and Bates.  He beat them all for the Republican nomination, then put them in his cabinet.  The better to keep an eye on you, my dear.

Not much about the military aspects of the war.  She is a superb writer who doesn't need to use syncretic to impress.  Patty
