History by the Book meets to discuss historical fiction and non-fiction books. We explore the deeper stories behind historical events and periods in the past.

In this compelling narrative, Erik Larson delves into the tumultuous months following Lincoln's election and preceding the Confederate attack on Sumter. Amid tragic errors and miscommunications, inflated egos, and selfish ambitions, individuals like Major Robert Anderson, a conflicted former slave owner; Edmund Ruffin, a fervent secessionist; and Mary Boykin Chesnut, grappling with personal and societal dilemmas, take center stage. Lincoln, overwhelmed and battling with his secretary of state, William Seward, strives to prevent the looming war that he believes is inevitable.

Books will be ready for pick-up on Thursday, June 20, 2024.
