ePub Arguing about Slavery ePub

by William Lee Miller

The best measure of my opinion about this book is that I own two copies:one that I've marked up with my comments in the margins and one that I use for lending purposes.It is what all history books should be.It covers a little known aspect of U.S. history — the self-imposed gag order that Congress put on itself in the 1840s and the heroic efforts of John Quincy Adams in bringing the gag order down.The author, William Lee Miller, is a history professor at the University of Virginia, who is a phenomenal writer.His writing makes this book a joy to read.Somehow, he takes the Congressional Globe and creates a revelatory history of the time period.I appreciate most his moral sense.He captures the moral dilemma of the time period and makes it alive to modern-day readers.William Lee Miller has made John Quincy Adams a hero to me.I cannot recommend this book more highly.
