About this Item

Former owner's name front free endpaper. One closed tear p. 21, minor rubbing top of spine and corners. Lettering on spine somewhat age-faded. Handsome red ribbed cloth. Very clean and tight copy. Howes P. 162, D-304.A major issue in the conspiracy charges leveled against the radical republicans in the aftermath of Lincoln's assassination was the fact that the accused were tried by a military commission, rather than a civilian tribunal. Author DeWitt charged that Secretary of War Stanton initiated a "reign of terror in which prisoners were physically and psychologically mistreated, denied all constitutional rights, and condemned by a military court that made a mockery of the American judicial system. (Does this sound familiar?) DeWitt merely accused Stanton of being unfit to govern in a crisis, more recent authors have argued that Stanton's actions were an attempt to silence the conspirators and to shield his own involvement and that of the Radical Republicans." (Thos. R. Turner, U. of Ill. Press). Bookseller Inventory # 56639
