HOUSE OF ABRAHAM Lincoln and the Todds, a Family Divided by War

by | Read by Michael Prichard

History • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

President Lincoln's in-laws were all Confederates--and such an embarrassment. Newspapers used the huge family's Rebel antics in anti-Lincoln rhetoric. Reports made Mary Todd's brother David infamous as the cruel warden of a Southern prison who kicked the dead bodies of the Union captives who had died from his neglect. This biography takes full advantage of Michael Prichard's narrative skills: rich vocabulary, clever turns of phrase, and the sleazy details of unsavory relatives described to perfection. Prichard's distinct voice fades into the background as he paints the unattractive and often humorous verbal portraits of the extended First Family of the Civil War. Michael Prichard's fans will hear him at his best. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
