When Abraham Lincoln was nine years old, his mother died from an ailment called the “milk sickness.” Only later did he learn that her fatal affliction was actually the work of a vampire. “Henceforth,” he wrote in his journal, “My life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion. I shall become...a master of mind and body. And this mastery shall have but one purpose...."
Gifted with his legendary height, strength and skill with an ax, Abe sets out on a path of vengeance that will lead him all the way to the White House.
While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving the Union and freeing millions of slaves, no one has ever known about his valiant lifelong battle with the undead...until Seth Grahame-Smith became the first living person to lay eyes on his secret journal in more than 140 years.
Using the journal as his guide and writing with the biographical flair of Doris Kearns Goodwin and David McCullough, Seth has reconstructed the true life story of the Great Emancipator—putting a supernatural spin on revisionist history while uncovering the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation. Includes creatively altered historical photographs throughout the book.
