Our 16th president led an extraordinary life, and according to this work of fiction, we only knew the half of it.
At the age of 12, Abe's story begins. From humble beginnings, Abe declared war on vampires when his mother was murdered by one. He spent most of his young life hunting and killing those who used humans as cattle. The Civil War wasn't just about slavery of African Americans--it was about slavery of all Americans...by vampires.
Grahame-Smith weaves vampires into the true story of Abraham Lincoln's life and presidency, focusing on the events in Lincoln's life that truly made him an amazing man..and in my opinion, the best president in history. Even without the vampire killing.
