The Road to Disunion, Vol. 1: Secessionists at Bay, 1776-1854
Far from a monolithic block of diehard slave states, the antebellum South was, in William Freehling's words, "a world so lushly various as to be a storyteller's dream." It was a world where Deep South cotton planters clashed with South Carolina rice growers, as Northern egalitarianism infiltrated border states already bitterly divided on key issues. It was the world of Jefferson Davis, John C. Calhoun, Andrew Jackson, and Thomas Jefferson, and also of Gullah Jack, Nat Turner, and Frederick Douglass.77% (5)
Now, in the first volume of his long awaited, monumental study of the South's road to disunion, historian William Freehling offers a sweeping political and social history of the antebellum South from 1776 to 1854. All the dramatic events leading to secession are here: the Missouri Compromise, the Nullification Controversy, the Gag Rule, the Annexation of Texas, the Compromise of 1850, and the Kansas-Nebraska Act. Vivid accounts of each crisis reveal the surprising extent to which slavery influenced national politics before 1850 and provide important reinterpretations of American republicanism, Jeffersonian states' rights, Jacksonian democracy, and the causes of the American Civil War.
Freehling's brilliant historical insights illustrate a work of rich social observation. In the cities of the Antebellum South, in the big house of a typical plantation, we feel anew the tensions between the slaveowner and his family, poor whites and planters, the Old and New Souths, and most powerfully between slave and master. Freehling has evoked the Old South in all its color, cruelty, and diversity. It is a memorable portrait, certain to be a key analysis of this crucial era in American history.
1854-D $2.50 PCGS AU58 CAC
Mintage: 1,760 The 1854-D quarter eagle is one of the legendary rarities from this mint. This is the third-lowest figure of any quarter eagle from this mint, and the 1854-D is a rare issue in all grades. The coin is better struck than usual for the issue, and it has lovely totally natural green-gold and orange-gold hues which are totally "right" for the date. There is just the slightest amount of friction on the high spots but this is the sort of coin I could see in an MS61 holder and in all honesty it wouldn't look silly as such. I know of four or five Uncirculated examples of the 1854-D and they are all off the market in tightly-held collections. This is the best AU58 example of this date that I have seen in years.1854 $5.00 NGC AU58

Such a set would make a great collection for the individual who likes "cool" coins but who doesn't have a huge budget.
