Team of Rivals doesn’t just tell the story of Abraham Lincoln. It is a multiple biography of the entire team of personal and political competitors that he put together to lead the country through its greatest crisis. Here, Doris Kearns Goodwin profiles five of the key players in her book, four of whom contended for the 1860 Republican presidential nomination (Edwin M. Stanton, Salmon P. Chase, William H. Seward, and Edward Bates) and all of whom later worked together in Lincoln’s cabinet.
