|Hi all, just wanted to share an interactive project we've been working on about the politics of the North leading up to the Civil War:
Follow the story of how the North finally stood up to the Slave Power through the eyes of 4 college classmates: Sen. John P. Hale, the first abolitionist senator, Franklin Pierce, the 14th President, Sen. William Pitt Fessenden, a founding father of the Republican Party, and author/political imagemaker Nathaniel Hawthorne.
