Very painstakingly detailed of the role of states rights vs countries rights. Also paralleled to plight of the slaves and the laws holding them down. This is the most detailed and interesting path from the Revolution to the Civil War I have every read. His book on Gettysburg is also a must read for any Civil War buff.
