In Congress at War: How Republican Reformers Fought the Civil War, Defied Lincoln, Ended Slavery, And Remade America, author Fergus Bordewich provides a new perspective on the Civil War that puts the House and Senate, rather than President Lincoln, at the center of the conflict.
Please join the Legislative Branch Capacity Working Group as Governance Fellow Anthony Marcum virtually sits down with Bordewich to discuss Congress’s essential role in ending the Civil War, how government can function at its best in challenging times and how crises may even make it stronger.
