    Some historical figures are so intertwined that it's impossible to give an accurate account of one life without mentioning the other. In these volumes, connected pairs are some of the most famous and contentious rivalries in history. Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis, Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots, and Sitting Bull and George Armstrong Custer are three of the featured foils whose relationships are integral to their biographies as well as to certain momentous events. Each book explains the historical context surrounding the rivalry and the impact and aftermath of the opposing forces. Photographs, paintings, and quotation boxes are highlights of the appealing design.
