Extremely fascinating survey of a little understood president
I think this book is a great idea--to look at a president who is little talked about, and if at all, in a negative way, and explore not only his particular take on the events of his day, but how he was in many ways a most misunderstood chief executive. The author documents in particular Pierce's many controversial stands and actions during the Civil War, and does so in a way that makes you feel that Pierce was a good man, trying to defend constitutional liberties in the forbidding atmosphere of war-time America.
