The Crisis weaves the dramatic story of Civil War America with the romance of an idealistic Northern lawyer’s love for a southern belle. The action centers about St. Louis, the home of the author as well as the pre-Civil War home of both Grant and Sherman. It covers the years leading up to the first battles of the Civil War in the divided state of Missouri. The Crisis was the best-selling book of 1901.
