A Basic History of the United States
Volume 3, Sections and the Civil War, 1826-1877Audiobook CD - 2007
Carson begins this third volume by diagnosing the root causes which eventually gave rise to sectionalism: regional differences and changes, the election of 1824, the Adams administration, and the emergence of the two parties of American government. The book goes on to discuss the meaning of Jacksonian Democracy; the removal of the Indians; the nullification and bank controversies; the plantation system; the Transcendentalists and the development of American literature; the Public School movement; Westward expansion; the election of Lincoln; and finally, the Civil War.
