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.

This is a fantastic podcast. You guys make history feel vivid and real. I listen while riding my bike and it feel like I imagine radio shows were back in the day. You do a great job of helping me see the story unfold in my minds eye and your attention to detail is outstanding. Please make more and keep them coming.
