Summary
  • "In this book, Kyle Sinisi explores a little known chapter in the history of American government in the second half of the nineteenth century - the struggle between states and the federal government over the costs of fighting the Civil War. At stake was the disposition of some $468 million."
  • "Focusing on Kansas, Kentucky, and Missouri, Sinisi explores the process by which states were reimbursed by Washington for their costs incurred during the War - the most sustained and expensive intergovernmental contact during the late nineteenth century. Drawing on a wealth of evidence, he reveals new dimensions to the common understanding of governance. He shows that traditional sources for power, money, and benefits - courts and political parties - were less important in settling Civil War claims than was an ever-changing group of adjutants general and private agents who fought for cash bonanzas."
  • "In this analysis of the dynamics of state-federal relations during one of the nation's most turbulent periods, Sinisi sheds new light on the sources of modern political systems in America."--BOOK JACKET
