Daniel Stashower - The Hour of Peril: The Secret Plot to Murder Lincoln Before the Civil War

Sunday, February 10, 2013 at 1:00 pm
In Stashower’s riveting reconstruction, the 1861 “Baltimore Plot” to kill Lincoln on the eve of his inauguration seems tailor-made for fiction—but this account by the journalist and biographer of Arthur Conan Doyle is history. Featuring detective Allan Pinkerton and Kate Warne, the country’s first female private eye, this is a fascinating look at pre-Civil War tensions.
