Can Abigail and her classmates jump into the past and convince President Lincoln to write the Emancipation Proclamation? Book one in an action-packed time-travel series.

And the question takes on real-life importance for Abigail, Zack, Jacob, and Bo, because Mr. Caruthers wants them to travel back in time and convince President Lincoln to write the Emancipation Proclamation.
