Amiable Scoundrel: Simon Cameron, Lincoln's Scandalous Secretary of War
- By: Paul Kahan
- Narrated by: Michael Kazalski
- Length: 9 hrs and 47 mins
From abject poverty to undisputed political boss of Pennsylvania, Simon Cameron (1799–1889) was one of the 19th century’s most prominent political figures. In his wake, however, he left a series of questionable political and business dealings and, at the age of 80, even a sex scandal. Amiable Scoundrel puts Cameron’s actions into a larger historical context by demonstrating that many politicians of the time, including Abraham Lincoln, used similar tactics to win elections and advance their careers.
