Lincoln and the triumph of the nation: constitutional conflict in the American Civil War.

Drawing on judicial opinions, presidential state papers, and political pamphlets, Mark Neely illuminates how the U.S. Constitution not only survived its greatest test but emerged stronger after the war, as he reveals how both North and South used their constitutions to fight the war and save, or create, their nation.
