In Congress at War, Fergus Bordewich shows how a newly empowered Republican Party shaped one of the most dynamic and consequential periods in American history. From reinventing the nation’s financial system to pushing President Lincoln to emancipate the slaves to the planning for Reconstruction, Congress undertook drastic measures to defeat the Confederacy, and in the process laid the foundation for a strong central government. A book signing follows the program.
