Summary
Covering the crucial years from the winning of independence to the creation of the federal government, The Forging of the Union may be considered a sequel to Richard B. Morris's Bancroft Award-winning book, The Peacemakers. Reexamining an enormous fund of original sources and the latest monographs, Morris treats the Confederation interlude as an extraordinary, if brief, period of trial and experimentation. Grave doubts were entertained on a wide variety of issues: the survival of an American union, perpetuation of republican values, the power of a strengthened central government to deal with the great European states, prosperity, sectional tensions, and secessionist murmurings. Would a durable union in fact perpetuate a government by the elite to the detriment of the common people? - Back cover
