“Everything appertaining to the history of our country…must necessarily interest the American citizen.”

John A. Marshall, American Bastile

 

“American Bastile” was a candid look, into the early American prison system. Originally published in 1869, just 3 years after the assassination of President Lincoln, the views expressed were controversial as they sought to show the trial to be an injustice to the American people. 

“This book, reprinted in at least 34 editions, is the most important contemporary secondary account of political arrests; yet it is very hostile to the Lincoln Administration.” (Nevins)
