Annotation:
In this magisterial history of an exciting era of territorial expansion and national growth, historian David Walker Howe describes how political and military events, new technologies, and the rise of religious and progressive movements (most notably, the one against slavery), contributed to a far larger and changed nation by the end of the War with Mexico in 1848. Howe explains how the railroads, the telegraph, political parties, and the rise of business and commerce helped bring about revolutionary changes, and he places these in context with ideas about government and the nation's purpose first set down by the founding fathers and later realized by people such as Andrew Jackson and others. The period covered in WHAT HATH GOD WROUGHT, from 1815 through 1848, acquires, in Howe's telling, a greater-than-before significance, and makes American history dramatically fresh again. WHAT HATH GOD WROUGHT won the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for History.
