Sidebar Saturdays contributor Jonathan F. Putnam’s debut novel, These Honored Dead, published today (August 9th, 2016).  It’s a historical legal mystery starring the young Abraham Lincoln and his real-life best friend Joshua Speed.  As Lincoln and Speed fight for justice on the American frontier, there’s one question at the top of everyone’s mind: does Lincoln have what it takes to crack his first murder trial?  Look for the book, the first in the Lincoln and Speed Mystery series, in bookstores or on-line now. Starred review from Publisher’s Weekly. For more information see
