After the assassination attempt, President Abraham Lincoln resigned to lead a quieter life, but the Civil War raged on, with no quick end in sight. Fortunately, a genius ex-slave named Gideon Bardsley is perfecting an advanced calculating engine he calls Fiddlehead that might capable of providing statistical proof that might convince the stubborn warring sides to put down their weapons. Lincoln likes the possibilities raised by the invention, but nefarious Confederate sharpshooters have other plans for the young genius. A trade paperback and NOOK Book original.
