Buchanan’s America: A Nation Divided [DVD]

$9.99

From LancasterHistory, in association with Aurora Films, comes a fresh look at the fifteenth President of the United States, James Buchanan. Despite having been one of America’s most accomplished politicians prior to taking office, James Buchanan’s presidency, marked by the struggles of an increasingly divided nation on the brink of Civil War, is ultimately considered a failure. Here, seven historians come together to reinterpret aspects of Buchanan’s life—his relationships, his presidency, his critical failure to face the issue of slavery, and his political legacy. Their commentary, along with documents, artifacts, and dramatic reenactments, reveal Buchanan’s America. 

This is a DVD.
