Mr. Holbrook retired in 2015 and intensified his personal pursuit to better understand the politics and public sentiments leading to and resulting from the American Civil War. It was that effort that lead him to research one Confederate spy–Mrs. Sarah Antoinette Slater–and her movements within the circle of Southern sympathizers who plotted directly against President Abraham Lincoln.
