In 1860, two decades of deep political and social frictions had led the United States to a territorial split and a war. Secession and the Civil War in the country caused an unprecedented commotion in terms of destruction and historical change. But both were the result of a slow and latent course of the American democracy history and the original republic, just as it was pictured by the first generations of american citizens. This book is not about the war itself but about the factors and events that in those years allowed the historical transition from the community of Americans to the contemporary American society.
