Team of Rivals doesn't just tell the story of Abraham Lincoln. It is a multiple biography of the entire team of personal and political competitors that he put together to lead the country through its greatest crisis. Here, Doris Kearns Goodwin profiles five of the key players, four of whom contended for the 1860 Republican presidential nomination and all of whom later worked together in Lincoln's cabinet. Steven Spielberg directed Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones in the 2012 multiple Oscar winning film adaptation.
