A House Divided-richard H. Sewell-what Caused The Civil War-slavery-politics :
Softcover Book Titled: ... A House Divided - Sectionalism & Civil War, 1848-1856, by; Richard H. Sewell
A well-written, traditional, and brief narrative of the period from the end of the Mexican War to the conclusion of the Civil War... Shows the value of traditional political history which is too often ignored in our rush to reconstruct the social texture of society. -- Civil War History, What caused the Civil War? A House Divided presents a fresh and balanced interpretation that challenges the view of slavery as a largely artificial or symbolic issue in the conflict between two incompatible societies. This book traces the growth of bitter sectional discord in the years after 1848, when the acquisition of new American territories rekindled old controversies over the expansion of slavery. A series of compromises forestalled the crisis of secession but increasingly divided the country along slavery's lines.Very Good Condition - No Writing - No torn or folded pages
