Book Review Team of Rivals

Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham Lincoln

An incredible book. I majored in history as an undergraduate and there is a very limited amount I remember of the Civil War. I remember battle names, cities, some of the major players, and little else. This book takes things to a personal level for the major players: Lincoln and his Cabinet. Interactions, friendships, and hardships are played out. Do you know who Hannibal Hamlin is? Well unless you pay attention to the book you may still not know after reading it; mainly because he had no real role…even as Vice President. This book is pretty much the mirror image of what I learned…fascinating book. Highly recommended
