Book Synopsis
If during the War of Independence eighty-five years earlier, we were a “nation conceived in liberty,” then we as a people had not learned the lessons of freedom. You'll discover slavery through the eyes of Washington, Jefferson, Hopkins, Pinkney and others of the Colonial era, and how 85 years later, the Nation erupted in BLOOD. With this volume we learn of a rising awareness of slavery and it's part in the American Civil War - although it was not the reason we went to war. We read the letters and speeches of import from John Brown, Thoreau, Calhoun, Clay, Choate, Douglas and many more. We go to the Alamo and study the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, the Gadsden Purchase, the Dred Scott decision and that of former President, John Quincy Adams before the Supreme Court arguing the rights of the captives aboard the ship, Amistad. We look at Lincoln, Davis and Lee, and learn of their stand on the issues, including state's rights. Are we freer today than our ancestors of 150 years ago?
