Summary

Returning to the turbulent days of a nation divided, best-selling author and acclaimed historian James Robertson explores 70 fascinating figures who shaped America during Reconstruction and beyond. Relentless politicians, intrepid fighters, cunning innovators - the times called for bold moves, and this resilient generation would not disappoint. From William Tecumseh Sherman, a fierce leader who would revolutionize modern warfare, to Thomas Nast, whose undefeatable weapon was his stirring cartoons, these are the people who weathered the turmoil to see a nation reborn. Following these extraordinary legends from the battle lines to the White House, from budding metropolises to the wooly west, we rediscover the foundation of this great country.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

An Introduction Only

This book offers you a good introduction into many of the characters of the post Civil War era. The sketches are pretty superficial but can help if you are looking for interesting people for more in depth biographic reading.
