This is the second in my Dr. Mary Walker Wednesdays series. Each week I’ll post the first sentence of a new chapter, along with an image that relates to material in the chapter. This week features the man who served as President Lincoln’s first Secretary of War.
Chapter Two: Commission Seeker
Dr. Mary Walker met with sixty-two-year-old Simon Cameron, a tall, clean-shaven man with an abundance of white hair.
