Freedom's Cap: The United States Capitol and the Coming of the Civil War

Guy Gugliotta, Author, Freedom's Cap

Hear the fascinating story of the design, engineering and construction of the U.S. Capitol building during a time of heated politics, sectional conflict and imminent civil war. Filled with larger-than-life characters like Jefferson Davis, future president of the Confederacy, Gugliotta’s tale is “an engrossing and surprising chronicle” (Booklist), and “a historical gem” (Publishers Weekly).
