D what the nation would stand for both at home and abroad for the next century and beyondA sweeping history of the United States from the era of Abraham Lincoln to the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt this engaging book stretches the boundaries of our understanding of Reconstruction Historian Heather Cox Richardson ties the North and West into the post–Civil War story that usually focuses narrowly on the South encompassi. I have never been a fan of History but I was encouraged to read this book It is written in a story telling fashion that is mostly linear There are many facets to this time period so there is a bit of back tracking due to herding cats But you can tell that it s an academic tome as the introduction is longer than most chapters and the appendices take up 25% of the volumeBottom line everything that is happening today started between 1865 and 1890 It s amazing that so many institutions both business and government were created during this period And while the names have changed the root problems haven t evolved muchNote that I read the Kindle version so there are no images and there were some odd font errors
