In this, one of the latest biographies of the Sixteenth President of the United States, by the author of the literary exposition, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Mr. Lincoln's secret (until now) avocation as vampire slayer is detailed. When Lincoln's mother becomes a victim of a vampire and passes away, he resolves to free the world of the vampire menace. It becomes a lifelong quest, as he soon learns that there is more at stake than a personal vendetta; the very freedom of every living man, woman and child in America is at risk. With help from a shadowy group of "good" vampires calling themselves "the Union," Lincoln learns that vampires have become entrenched in the economic, social and governmental affairs of the South, their plan being to eventually make the whole United States a vampire nation in which all the living are enslaved. The plans are thwarted when as President, Mr. Lincoln leads the North to defeat the vampire plotters and their Southern puppets. Taken from Lincoln's (until now) secret diaries, Mr. Grahame-Smith has written a worthy historical exposition of events in, and leading up to, the Civil War, and a fascinating biography of our Sixteenth President and lifelong vampire vanquisher Abraham Lincoln.
