Historian Fergus Bordewich on His Book “Congress At War”

July 26, 2021
Abraham Lincoln gets most of the attention given for political and governmental leadership during the American Civil War and deservedly so. The role of Congress during the war, however, is a compelling story in its own right. Historian Fergus Bordewich has written a book, “Congress At War”, that details the efforts of the House and Senate that worked both in concert and at odds with President Lincoln.  He discusses this terrific literary effort on this week's “Leaders and Legends” podcast.  Sponsors •      Veteran Strategies •      Girl Scouts of Central Indiana •      MacAllister Machinery •      Garmong Construction •      Crowne Plaza Downtown Indianapolis Historic Union Station About Veteran Strategies ‘Leaders and Legends’ is brought to you by Veteran Strategies—your local veteran business enterprise specializing in media relations, crisis communications, public outreach, and digital photography.
