    Great reading for Civil War buffs

    Well written documentary of the troubled times in our nation's history. Well annotated, plates are presented well, An entertaining and at times, surprising exploration of facts many perhaps do not know.

    This is a scholarly, comprehensive and well written biography of one of the great american secretaries of state.  The book adds a lot of insight into the civil war period.  It is particularly interesting in describing the Lincoln administrations efforts, led by Seward, to prevent Britain and France from intervening on the side of the Confederacy.    Highly recommended.

    Solid biography

    A well done book about a forgotten American statesman. Stahr emphasizes Seward's ability to put differences aside and work for the greater good of the Union.

    A wonderful follow-up to TEAM OF RIVALS, this book gave me great insight into a little-known figure who changed history.
