I first began reading Potter's book for a graduate course on Sectionalism & the Civil War, but soon found myself returning to the text to digest the anecdotal histories that were presented within. Potter does not attempt to reach for conclusions, but presents arguments based on observations and conclusions. He is quick to point out the cumulative nature of the sectional topics of contention--something that is sometimes allowed to be mistakenly approached in stand-alone fashion. This book should be the backbone of any attempt to understand the complexities of the slave issue, westward expansion and party politics between 1820 and 1861 in the United States.Was this review helpful?
