VIRTUAL TALK: “Congress at War” with Fergus Bordewich
January 6, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm$10.00
CONGRESS AT WAR
How Republican Reformers Fought the Civil War, Defied Lincoln, Ended Slavery, and Remade America
Most history books give Abraham Lincoln all the credit for winning the Civil War. This original perspective puts the House and Senate at the center of the conflict, showing how Congress took drastic measures to defeat the Confederacy. It reinvented the nation’s financial system, pushed President Lincoln to emancipate the slaves and planned for Reconstruction. Brimming with drama and outsized characters, this riveting narrative focuses on four influential members of Congress–Thaddeus Stevens, Pitt Fessenden, Ben Wade, and the pro-slavery Clement Vallandigham. It shows how a newly empowered Republican party shaped one of the most dynamic and consequential periods in American history and laid the foundation for a strong central government. Congress at War is one of the most original books about the Civil War to appear in years and will change the way we understand this conflict forever.
