Summary
In the 1830s, slavery was so deeply entrenched that it could not be discussed in Congress, which had enacted a gag rule summarily rejecting all anti-slavery petitions delivered to it. This stirring work of history chronicles John Quincy Adams's nine-year battle to overturn that rule and make slavery subject to parliamentary debate--a battle that paved the way for the Civil War
