A sharp snapshot of a political battle that marked the end of a very long war. Of course many of the issues are still with us a century later, and a certain presidential candidate bears some similarities to the current incumbent. But it's really about Tennessee in 1920 and the major forces in that world.

Until the American voter begins voting in larger numbers, this book is purely antithetical.
[Notice I shall refrain from touching upon a primary reason for women getting the vote in 1920: they came out in large numbers to pass Prohibition, which led to an explosion in the banksters and their crime syndicates, leading to the Great Crash {part Mellon's sucking-blood-from-a-turnip economic warfare policies/part laundering all that money from illegal sale of alcohol through the stock exchange} - - well done! And now we have Trump . . .]
