Robinson unearths anew how the alternative for union used to be fraught with discomfort and uncertainty, dividing households and generating years of sour internecine violence. Letters, diaries, newspapers, and quantitative proof light up how, within the absence of a compromise payment, proslavery Unionists controlled to defeat secession within the Border South.
