Summary
"In the years leading to the Civil War, the early national period witnessed the new American republic become a robust and rapidly expanding nation. A quickly growing national economy gave rise to a new middle class, while the acquisition of new territories provided opportunities for many Americans to seek their fortunes. As the colonies expanded into a country, writers and artists began to describe a national character in their works. Above all, however, the institution of slavery overshadowed the country's daily and political life, and the battle for abolition began to divide communities."--Back cover
