About this title:

Synopsis: The Credit Mobilier scandal rocked Washington in 1873. It ruined reputations, contributed to a massive Republican defeat in the 1874 congressional elections and colored the Mark Twain-Charles Dudley Warner novel, The Gilded Age: a Tale of Today. It validated anxieties about corruption and concentrated economic power as America staggered toward industrialization. Few other political scandals have been so consequential.

About the Author: Robert B. Mitchell is an editor with the Washington Post News Service. He is the author of Skirmisher: the Life, Times and Political Career of James B. Weaver, winner of the 2009 Benjamin F. Shambaugh award from the State Historical Society of Iowa. He is a 1980 graduate of Grinnell College and lives in Woodbridge, Virginia, with his wife, Denise.
