Sounding Forth the Trumpet brings to life one of the most crucial epochs in our nation's history: the events leading up to and precipitating the Civil War. Relive the frenzy of the Gold Rush, the harsh realities of the Mexican War, the skirmishes of Bleeding Kansas, and the emergence of Abraham Lincoln. Throughout this engaging narrative, the tragic issue of slavery provides focus, from John Quincy Adams' struggle to preserve the right of petition in Congress to the history- changing election of 1860. Now repackaged for a new generation, Sounding Forth the Trumpet exposes a dark chapter in our nation's history and at the same time explores the young nation's drive toward freedom and independence.
