William Seward (1801-1872) was, according to historian Walter Stahr, the most indispensable of Abraham Lincoln's "team of rivals." (John Wilkes Booth apparently agreed: He assigned a confederate to kill the Secretary of State; the would-be assassin failing in the assignment.) This standard-setting new biography shows what made Seward such a vital right-hand man.
