In honor of Seward's birthday, which is May 16, I thought I'd post that Walter Stahr, author of John Jay: Founding Father, has written a biography of Seward which will be published in September 2012.  The title is William Henry Seward: Lincoln's Indispensable Man.

http://www.amazon.com/Seward-Lincolns-Indispensable-Walter-Stahr/dp/1439121168/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1337220608&sr=1-1-fkmr0

Here's the link to Stahr's website:

That's good to see, Linda. Now if someone could come up with new biographies of Stanton, Welles and Bates.

Rob,

Were you refering to noted author ( and  - cough, cough - historian)  Finis Bates?     

  I would love to see an updated one on Stanton and Laf. Baker (at a reasonable price)

No, but I've seen it on the shelf at my local library
I just haven't been in the mood for such a long book, though I've heard nothing but good about it.
