Some brief overview of this book

This is the story of the little Indiana lawyer who, in an age of political dishonesty, became President of the United States without seeking the office, or once sacrificing his honor or integrity. Based on recently released private papers and the hitherto unpublished memoranda of Louis T. Mitchener, Harrison's presidential campaign manager, BENJAMIN HARRISON: HOOSIER STATES This is the story of the little Indiana lawyer who, in an age of political dishonesty, became President of the United States without seeking the office, or once sacrificing his honor or integrity.

Based on recently released private papers and the hitherto unpublished memoranda of Louis T. Mitchener, Harrison's presidential campaign manager, BENJAMIN HARRISON: HOOSIER STATESMAN introduces the Benjamin Harrison of 1865, a sunburnt veteran returning from the Civil War to Indianapolis and his young family, his long-neglected law practice, and the piled-up bills of three year's absence. Laying aside his blue uniform with its brigadier-general star, "Little Ben" proceeds to win himself a national reputation as a courtroom lawyer in such widely known cases as that of Nancy Clem, murderess; Hiram P.

Brownleee, "kid gloves" client; and Lambdin P. Milligan, Civil War traitor. A rousing campaign orator, Harrison rose quickly in politics, first as an active member of the Republican Party, then as junior senator from Indiana during the Arthur and Cleveland administrations.

Colorful issues and personalities confronted him in his new public life. The 1880s in America was an era of open patronage and flamboyant political quarrels; the battle of the Western Territories for statehood, the "Greenbackers", the "Chinese Problem" on the Pacific Coast, and the metamorphosis of the "Boys in Blue" into the young and powerful G.A.R. The political scene knew personalities like Blaine, the "Plumed Knight" from Maine; Whitlaw Reid, owner of the New York Tribune; "Boss" Quay of Pennsylvania; "Boss" Platt of New York; and Morton of Indiana.
