By Peter Parish. Published 2000. ISBN 9780718716257



Detailed Description

Parish explores the evolution of American nationalism and identity at a time when it faced its greatest crisis from the mid to late nineteenth century, in the build up to and aftermath of the Civil War. Abraham Lincoln's role was inevitably central to the building of the American nation when the country faced 'sectional rivalry' and 'divisions over slavery'.
