History, Virtual & Streaming
Upon his election to the presidency, Abraham Lincoln inherited a country in crisis, including a Treasury that had run out of money. Amid the unprecedented troubles of the Confederacy seceding from the Union, Lincoln saw opportunity—the chance to legislate in the centralizing spirit of the “more perfect Union” that had first drawn him to politics. Roger Lowenstein reveals, through a financial lens, the largely untold story of how Lincoln used the urgency of the Civil War to transform a union of states into a united nation.
