James Buchanan and the Coming of the Civil War

Details

President James Buchanan entered the White House in 1857 with sectional disharmony already intensifying.  By the end of his term, southern state secession commenced. This lecture and book signing, based in part on the recently published book The Worlds of James Buchanan and Thaddeus Stevens, will be presented by Dr. Michael Birkner of Gettysburg College.
