7.   Smith, Elbert B.
The Death of Slavery: The United States, 1837-65

Top corner of front flap of DJ is creased, extremities rubbed a bit; in Brodart archival cover. From the preface: "The coming of the Civil War has been distorted by two kinds of hindsight. First, there has been the argument that the war was 'inevitable.' .. Second, there has been the argument that the war was a simple conflict between Good and Evil.. To ask ourselves simply 'Why was the war inevitable?' or 'Why were so many Americans against freedom?' is to miss the actual experience of most of the people of those years. To sense what it was really like to be alive then, we must try to see the choices those men saw." Shipping weight 2 lbs.
