A look at the actions of three political leaders who presided over the reshaping of North America during the 1860s: Jefferson Davis and his quest to create a country in the South of the United States by establishing the Confederate States of America; Abraham Lincoln and his crusade to save the Union; and John A. Macdonald and his drive to make the British North American provinces into a federal state that would keep the territory out of American hands.
