"Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis did not bring the war about. They were, as the word went then, moderates, sharing a common vision of the ultimate value of an undivided country, hoping that the country could compose its differences without loss of blood. But the war came, party in spite of these men and partly because of them, and when it came they fought one another, and led others to fight, so tenaciously that the nation had its most fearful trial by combat. Lincoln and Davis were both the leaders of their peoples and the victims of their times?"(Excerpt from the Introduction) -- back cover

Two roads to Sumter Abraham Lincoln, Jefferson Davis and the march to Civil war by William B Catton( Recording )

2 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work focuses on America in the 1850s and shows how north and south became increasingly isolated from each other and started down the two roads to the Battle of Fort Sumter and all-out war. Concurrently the book examines the formation and divergence of the attitudes of Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis (both born in Kentucky) during this complex period of American history. It describes the era when great railroads were built; the tremendous land-hungry westward expansion of people; the development of the great industrial empires of the north and the great farm empires of the South, and the major factors which, woven together, precipitated the Civil War
