    Introducing: 1865 Season 2

    Introducing: 1865 Season 2

    Listen now: wondery.fm/1865season2

    April 15, 1865. President Lincoln is dead and the country in turmoil.

    Secretary of War Edwin Stanton takes control, determined to bring the assassin to justice—but the hunt for John Wilkes Booth isn’t all that grips Stanton.

    Lincoln’s successor, Vice President Andrew Johnson, is likely to bend to southern interests and undo the very progress for which Lincoln died. Edwin Stanton must employ every bit of political wile he can muster to secure the future of the freed slaves, and the nation.

    Consumed by his conviction, Stanton will betray his friends, his honor, and the very constitution he is sworn to protect, all to steer the country towards justice.

John DeLorean was a legend of the automobile industry who rose to the highest levels within General Motors. But his ambition for more than what Detroit could offer brought him to Hollywood, where he became entangled in a web of drugs, betrayal—and the FBI.
