Description
Broadly surveying the most tumultuous decades in America's history, the author of the National Book Critics Circle Award finalist White Heat vividly brings to life the secession crisis, the Civil War, Reconstruction, and the settlement of the west. Incorporating compelling quotations and stories that illustrate the nation's larger conflicts, Brenda Wineapple's history features such unforgettable figures as P.T. Barnum, John Brown, Walt Whitman, Jefferson Davis, George Custer, Frederick Douglass, and Henry Adams.

"A splendidly lyrical portrait of the decades that encompass both the Civil War and Reconstruction.... Beautifully written, artfully constructed, and passionately argued on every page, Ecstatic Nation stands forth as a model of narrative history."—Ron Chernow
