I just pulled out my old copy and reread Chapter V, "Birth and development of the United States Customs Service." This chapter contains the best non- biased description of the history of the United States leading up to the Civil War I have read in my life. In my opinion, this book should be required reading for all students in the US. A careful reading of this chapter provides a short, but accurate description of what lead to the breakup of the United States. It does not cast blame but gives the thoughtful reader an opportunity to see that that there were legitimate arguments on both sides for the policies to this war. I believe that an understand of how the terrible fighting between political parties lead to war.
