Apprentice Killers: The War of Lincoln and Davis — a great book about a man from the Midwest and his contemporaries in another time of awful peril for our nation.

Back to our own time: The public is fickle. It most always alternates the character of its presidents. We had a most intelligent and good man with a great wife and family in Barack Obama. Then we had the polar opposite in Trump — sad. By this unwritten law of character alternation, Michelle should be our first female president.

Jim Ridgway, Jr. military writer — author of the American Civil War classic, “Apprentice Killers: The War of Lincoln and Davis.” Christmas gift, yes!
