ABOUT THE SHOW
Napoleon fenced. So did Shakespeare, Karl Marx, Grace Kelly, and President Truman. Lincoln was a canny dueler. "By the Sword" is a Spanish-laced abstraction of sword fightingâ€” a science, an art, and, for many, a religion that began at the dawn of civilization in ancient Egypt and has been an obsession for mankind ever since.
