Author: Ted Curtis

Baseball…Lincoln…And the century’s greatest treasure hunt

One of the great American campfire stories is that President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated as retaliation for hiding a treasure so valuable that, if taken by the Confederacy, it would destroy the Union and, consequently, bring down the United States of America. That treasure became known as The Lincoln Diamonds.

None of this really matters much to grad student and Bronx native, Ben Harrison, who spends nearly every summer day either watching over his teenage cousin Robert at Yankee Stadium, or working on his master’s thesis on legal history. That is, until Ben researches the private files of Kenesaw Mountain Landis – baseball’s first commissioner and former federal judge with ties to Lincoln’s cabinet – and finds an old baseball card with cryptic messages.

With his teenage cousin Robert in tow, and shadowy characters at every turn, Ben soon finds himself on a secret trail throughout the game of baseball and its legendary ballparks…all leading to a real, live hunt to find the greatest of American treasures.
