Book Talk - Author Noah Andre Trudeau

Sunday, 03/19/2017 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

Free Book Talk with Author Noah Andre Trudeau on his book: Lincoln's Greatest Journey: Sixteen Days that Changed a Presidency, March 24 - April 8, 1865. March 1865: The United States was at a crossroads and, truth be told, Abraham Lincoln was a sick man. “I am very unwell,” he confided to a close acquaintance. A vast and terrible civil war was winding down, leaving momentous questions for a war-weary president to address. A timely invitation from General U. S. Grant provided the impetus for an escape to City Point, Virginia, a journey from which Abraham Lincoln drew much more than he ever expected. Lincoln’s Greatest Journey: Sixteen Days that Changed a Presidency, March 24 – April 8, 1865, by Noah Andre Trudeau offers the first comprehensive account of a momentous time.Attachments
