Lincoln http://wyso.org en Book Nook: The Hour of Peril, by Daniel Stashower http://wyso.org/post/book-nook-hour-peril-daniel-stashower <p>After Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1861 he took a long, circuitous train trip from his home in Springfield, Illinois to Washington, D.C. for his inauguration. Along the way Lincoln made frequent stops. He got off the train and made speeches. Meanwhile, further down the line, in Baltimore, Maryland, plotters were hoping to do great harm to Mr. Lincoln when his train passed through the city.</p> Tue, 05 Feb 2013 19:13:48 +0000 Vick Mickunas 28589 at http://wyso.org Book Nook: The Hour of Peril, by Daniel Stashower
