But Northern hatred for Southerners had been long in the making. Northern rage was born of the conviction that New England, whose spokesmen and militia had begun the American Revolution, should have been the leader of the new nation. Instead, they had been displaced by Southern "slavocrats" like Thomas Jefferson. And Northern envy only exacerbated the South's greatest fear: race war. In the sixty years preceding the outbreak of civil war, Northern and Southern fanatics ramped up the struggle over slavery. By the time they had become intractable enemies, only the tragedy of a bloody civil war could save the Union. In this riveting and character-driven history, one of America's most respected historians traces the "disease in the public mind"-distortions of reality that seized large numbers of Americans-in the decades-long run-up to the Civil War., CD HISTORY US 19TH, Compact discs., DLCengDLCDLCTnLvILS, Digital content provided by hoopla., E459.F55 2013, E459.F55 2013b, Explores the possibility that the Civil War started not because of slavery, but because the South was chosen to house the nation's leadership instead of in Northern New England where the Revolution had begun., Fleming looks at the resons of why the Civil War was fought., Fleming, Thomas J., HIS036040HIS036050, HISTORY / United States / 19th Century, HISTORY / United States / Civil War Period (1850-1877), HISTORY US CIV WAR, Hughes, Wililam,1957-.|Narrator, Hughes, William,1957-|Narrator, Includes bibliographical references and index., MOM9589758BT0012730316L41569000000ACPL33021023599845, MWT10882563, Made available through hoopla, Midwestrda, Mode of access: World Wide Web., New England, New York :Da Capo Press,c2013., NjBwBTNjBwBTNjBwBT, Political culture, Prologue : John Brown's raid -- Slavery comes to America -- Slavery's great foe-- and unintended friend -- The first Emancipation Proclamation -- One head turning into thirteen -- The forgotten emancipator -- Thomas Jefferson's nightmare -- New England preaches-- and almost practices-- secession -- How not to abolish slavery -- New England rediscovers the sacred Union -- Another Thomas Jefferson urges Virginia to abolish slavery -- The abolitionist who lost his faith -- Abolitionism divides and conquers itself -- Enter Old Man Eloquent -- The slave patrols -- The trouble with Texas -- Slave power paranoia -- From Uncle Tom to John Brown -- The real Uncle Tom and the unknown South he helped create -- Free soil for free (white) men -- The whole world is watching -- An ex-president tries to save the Union -- The anguish of Robert E.
