Description

April 15, 1865. President Lincoln is dead and the country in turmoil.

Secretary of War Edwin Stanton takes control, determined to bring the assassin to justice—but the hunt for John Wilkes Booth isn’t all that grips Stanton.

Lincoln’s successor, Vice President Andrew Johnson, is likely to bend to southern interests and undo the very progress for which Lincoln died. Edwin Stanton must employ every bit of political wile he can muster to secure the future of the freed slaves, and the nation.

Consumed by his conviction, Stanton will betray his friends, his honor, and the very constitution he is sworn to protect, all to steer the country towards justice.

Last week, 1865 writers and co-creators Steve Walters and Erik Archilla spoke with the hosts of the podcast Totalus Rankium--an irreverent and often cheeky revue of American presidents from a Brittish perspective. These two gents, Rob and Jamie, rank each president in categories of statesmanship, scandal, how Hollywood-ready they are, and how good their official portrait is.The podcast aired over the weekend, but Rob and Jaimie were kind enough to allow me to rebroadcast the episode on our feed. I hope you enjoy it, and if you do, be sure to subscribe to Totalus Rankium--they’ve just finished their ranking of Rutherford B Hayes, who of course succeeded Ulysses S Grant, who of course succeeded Andrew Johnson. It’s a great show, amusing but informative, much like their conversation with Steve and Erik.1865 is an Airship production.

From the inevitable election of George Washington in 1789, to Donald Trump’s surprise electoral victory in 2016, we’ll attempt to discover if there ever was a “good ol’ days,” or if presidential politics have always been played dirty.
