Heirs of the Founders by H.W. Brands

Heirs of the Founders is the perfect sequel to books like Joseph J. Ellis’s Founding Brothers and The Quartet. While none became president, Webster, who could make an opposing Supreme Court justice cry; Clay, the great compromiser; and Calhoun, chief apologist for slavery, were the giants of American politics and it was their compromises that held the union together and their clashes that sent it flying apart. They died with slavery unresolved and the Civil War looming on the horizon. By the author of the Pulitzer Prize–winning Traitor to His Class. - Dave
