About Book

Book Description
This look at the life and career of the statesman and orator describes Calhoun's years at Yale Law School, his role as a Congressman, his support of war with Great Britain in 1812, and more. South Carolina's greatest political figure - senator, secretary of war, secretary of state, and vice president, in a distinguished career that began in the early days of Madison's presidency and concluded during the Taylor-Fillmore administration, a span of nearly four decades.

As Secretary of War under Monroe, he had an outstanding tenure during which he reformed the army's purchasing policies, developed stronger defense outposts in the west, and crafted an almost enlightened Indian policy.
