Dear Reader,

Since my objective with The LEFT BEHINDS series is to have modern kids, as personified by Mel, Bev, and Brandon, not only visit but also play a role in critical turning points in American history, what could be more significant than the Civil War?

ABE LINCOLN AND THE SELFIE THAT SAVED THE UNION continues the time-travel adventures of our 12-year-old heroes. Now they find themselves in Washington, DC, in July 1863 — just as the epic battle of Gettysburg is about to begin. Soon they encounter the Lincolns — Abe, Mary, and Tad, their 10-year-old son, who brings them to his "fort" on the White House roof. Ultimately they make their way to Gettysburg where they have a run-in with General Robert E. Lee himself! This time the gang is going to have make sure things turn out exactly as they're supposed to turn out — otherwise history will be changed forever!

Thank you for taking this reimagined journey with me back to another pivotal point in American history.
