The Impeachment of Abraham Lincoln by Stephen L. Carter

How would Abraham Lincoln's second term as president have played out if he hadn't been assassinated at Ford's Theater in April, 1865? Carter presents what might have happened in this alternate history, with Radical Republicans leading an impeachment attempt for Lincoln's supposed unconstitutional abuse of power. This is more than a novel of political intrigue, as the impeachment proceedings are simply the visible side of a deeper conspiracy. This is a riveting historical thriller set in an America that has changed much in the aftermath of civil war, emancipation, and reconstruction.
