From the Publisher:

This well-researched work covers the stages and battles of the Civil War, and expounds upon the constitutional issues that arose during the conflict. Broad issues are covered, such as secession, powers of the President, Congressional enabling acts to handle the rebellion, and emancipation of the slave population at the time. This two volume treatise also describes the roles of key individuals in the series of events, such as Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, and Stephen Arnold Douglas. An informative chronology is included. Must reading for students of history and for lawyers.

From the Back Cover:

It could be argued that the civil war was the most influential event in the history of the United States. In THE CIVIL WAR AND THE CONSTITUTION - VOL. 1, political scientist John W. Burgess explores the politics, people, and sentiments of this time, and closely examines the constitutional issues of the Civil War.

Volume 1 of this two-volume work covers anti-slavery sentiment in the South between 1857 and 1860, the presidential election of 1860, the secession of the South, Lincoln's administration, and military campaigns. Burgess also provides personal histories of the three men who were called to lead during this time -- Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, and Stephen Arnold Douglas.
