book content

THE DEMON OF UNREST covers the pivotal five months from Lincoln's election to the start of the Civil War, and the new president's efforts to avert the inevitable. Larson, a true master storyteller, had access to diaries, secret communications, slave ledgers and plantation records to give readers this horror story with a focus on a Southern former slave owner, loyal to the Union and a vain, bloodthirsty radical set on destroying the country.
