A dissection of the question of a Union in the wake of the Civil War, Harris points out the seeming inconsistencies in the historical record of Massachusetts, alluding to its "states rights" record on such questions as the War of 1812 as well as the "spiteful animus" of its attempts to nullify the Fugitive Slave law. With the errata slip. Sabin 90645.
