Summary
"Dominated by the tragedy of the Civil War and its aftermath, the period from 1860 to 1876 presented for the United States the greatest challenge to a still young nation. The struggle to unite the country after the secession of 11 Southern states, and in the course, to abolish slavery, was led by Abraham Lincoln. Throughout this tumultuous period, a burgeoning industrial economy, made possible largely by the completion of the transcontinental railroad in 1869, began to transform America's economy and society just as profoundly as the war."--p.[4] of cover
