The Election of 1860: A Nation Divides on the Eve of War

Throughout the 1850s, the issues of slavery and states' rights had divided the nation. With the election of 1860, these issues finally came to a head, setting the stage for the American Civil War. Compelling, action-packed text, vivid sensory details, and primary source quotes bring the story to life so that readers feel as if they were actually alive during the historical event.
