Lincoln and Oregon Country Politics in the Civil War Era

Lincoln and Oregon Country Politics in the Civil War Era

Description

This cross-continental history demonstrates Abraham Lincoln's strong connections with the Oregon Country on various political issues-Indian relations, military policies, civil and legal rights, and North-South ideological conflicts-before and during the Civil War years. Richard Etulain refutes the argument that Pacific Northwest residents were mere "spectators of disunion," revealing instead that men and women of the Oregon Country were personally and emotionally involved in the controversial ideas and events that inflamed the United States during the fractious era. Etulain's well-researched and clearly told story demonstrates how links between Washington, D.C., and the Oregon Country helped shape both Lincoln's policies and Oregon politics.
