    Impending Crisis

    Post by alohafri on Wed Mar 16, 2016 8:36 am

    The current history book I'm reading (Impending Crisis: America Before The Civil War) talks about how a very heated debate on the Compromise of 1850 finally ended with passage of the bill, the attendance of the next day's Congress was very low due to the fact that the members felt it was their patriotic duty to go out and get drunk together.

    It's a great book. Clay and Calhoun hated each other, yet they somehow worked together.
