The decades between the Revolutionary Era and the Civil War are often described as our young country’s “adolescence” – exciting and optimistic times, marked by spectacular geographic and economic growth. But there were storm clouds on the horizon – violence, alcoholism, political stresses and the specter of slavery. Explore the fascinating issues of the age and the men and women who grappled with them.
