The Battle of Giants (PB)
by W. Stackhouse
The Battle of Giants is a historical study of the Reconstruction period following the American Civil War. W. Stackhouse explains that a conflict between Congress and the Presidency did not start after Lincolns assassination, but began as early as 1863 when a group of radical Republicans was in opposition to the re-nomination of Abraham Lincoln. This conflict erupted by the time the Reconstruction came along.
Stackhouse closely examines the differences between the Lincoln and Johnson Plans and the Stevens-Radical Plan during the Reconstruction, while looking to answer the question if the radical Republicans were trying to place Ben Wade in the Oval Office when they impeached President Johnson.
The Battle of Giants will appeal to readers interested in historical texts about Civil War-era America.
