The War of 1812 is frequently known as the Second War of Independence. The war proved to American citizens that they could hold their ground on land and sea against the combined British, Native American, and British Canadian forces. In preparation for the attack on New Orleans, Andrew Jackson arrived to build defenses and lead the disparate defenders: 4,700 men, including 462 free men of color, 52 Choctaw warriors, and the forces of notorious pirate and smuggler Jean Lafitte. The decisive victory in the Battle of New Orleans proved to the American people that the United States was military power with which to be reckoned.

The dispute quickly overtook the small Appalachian community of Hart, West Virginia, leaving at least four dead and igniting a decade-long vendetta.

King puts a new twist on the old mystery of Lincoln’s death. Deep within the plot is the manipulative and corrosive character Anderson. The same man who outwitted the Confederates in King’s first novel, A Bullet for Stonewall, is back to execute the most history-altering plan of his career. King has done extensive research on the assassination as well as the years that followed. In his work, he looked at how political plans changed following Lincoln’s death. The guiding factor of his sleuthing was to determine who seemed to benefit from the aftermath. And thus he found the premise for this, his second novel. Hardcover.
