About Book

Book Description
1928. Born in Germany, Schurz was compelled to flee after the collapse of the revolutionary movement. He emigrated to the United States, where he settled in Watertown, Wisconsin and became a strong supporter of Abraham Lincoln, who appointed him U.S. minister to Spain. Schurz resigned this position to serve in the Civil War. Promoted to major general he fought in the battles of Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and Chattanooga and served with Gen. William T. Sherman's army in North Carolina. Schurz was Washington correspondent of the New York Tribune, editor of the Detroit Post, and joint editor and owner of the St. Louis Westliche Post. He was U.S. Senator from his adopted state of Missouri. Schurz supported Rutherford B. Hayes, whose hard money views he approved, for the presidency. He served in Hayes's cabinet as Secretary of the Interior. He was an editor of the New York Evening Post and wrote editorials for Harper's Weekly. In 1884, convinced of James G. Blaine's unfitness for office, Schurz led the mugwumps in their opposition to Blaine's nomination and candidacy. Schurz supported the Democrat Grover Cleveland in that year and again in 1888 and 1892. He turned to William McKinley in 1896 because of William Jennings Bryan's currency views, but in 1900 he supported Bryan because of his anti-imperialist views.
