From the co-Author of Pride and Predjudice and Zombies! When Abraham Lincoln was nine, his mother died from an ailment called the 'milk sickness.' Only later did he learn that his mother's deadly affliction was actually the work of a local vampire, seeking to collect on Abe's father's debts. While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for reuniting the North with the South and abolishing slavery from our country, no one has ever understood his valiant fight for what it really was.
Using Lincoln's personal journal as his guide and writing in the grand biographical style of David McCullough, Grahame-Smith has reconstructed the true life story of our greatest president for the first time--all while revealing the hidden history behind the Civil War, and uncovering the massive role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation.
