Trefousse traces Stevens’ career through its major phases, from his days in the Pennsylvania state legislature, when he antagonized Freemasons, slaveholders, and Jacksonian Democrats, to his political involvement during Reconstruction, when he helped author the 14th Amendment and spurred on the passage of the Reconstruction Acts and the impeachment of Andrew Johnson. Throughout, Trefousse explores the motivations for Stevens’ lifelong commitment to racial equality, thus furnishing a fuller portrait of the man whose fervent opposition to slavery helped move his more moderate congressional colleagues toward the implementation of egalitarian policies.

Would you ever listen to anything by Hans L. Trefousse again?
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Not much he could do. The book was written at most at high school level.
What character would you cut from Thaddeus Stevens?
Any additional comments?
This book is not for adults. It appears to be written for someone with little to no historical knowlege. It should have been listed, at most, as a "young adult" book.
