Newly inaugurated President Abraham Lincoln responds by issuing a call for 75,000 volunteers for the army, quintupling its size. There could be but one purpose: to invade and subdue the Confederacy.

He is advised by Gen. Winfield Scott, the heroic but aging general-in-chief, that the best officer to command this army would be Col. Robert E. Lee, who would be worth 50,000 troops for the Union cause. In Alabama, Confederate President Jefferson Davis reaches the same conclusion and sends a secret agent north to Lees estate. His attempt to persuade Lee to join the Confederacy will only work if Virginia secedes from the Union and joins the Confederacy. Thus the converging ambitions of the Union and the Confederacy are brought into sharp focus in this towering tale of the first few weeks of the Civil War.Richard Busenkell delivers a fascinating novel set in the most tumultuous time in American history.

As the Union and the Confederates look for a strong leader to lead their armies on the coming, they must act decisively before someone takes justice into his own hands and ends the very life of one who may lead their army. A Silence at Arlington gives a close-up look at the lives of those behind the greatest changes in America.
