Abstract

purely partisan whimsy. Again, it is through the eyes of Hay, Adams, and Horace Greeley that we see the issues in the 1872 presidential election. Even though Hay was then working for Greeley, it seems odd that he would support him for president, having known him so long and recalling his efforts, however well intentioned, to thwart President Lincoln whenever it suited his fancy. The main point of the book remains to present a full biography of a major player in American history and culture; in this it succeeds very well indeed. Robert McColley robert mccolley is professor emeritus of history at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the author of Slavery and Jeffersonian Virginia (University of Illinois Press, 1964). 38 Nooses: Lincoln, Little Crow, and the Beginning of the Frontier's End.
