  From the end of the War of 1812 through the first railroads and telegraphs, the Mexican-American War which shifted America's center of gravity  to the slaveowning south.  Meanwhile, evangelism, temperance (anti-alcohol) and anti-slavery movements stirred up the country.

If you haven't read it yet, maybe now is a good time, and guess what, it's a best-seller which means Amazon is discounting it big.  Accept no substitutes (esp. from anybody named Beck).
