David Rice Atchison of Missouri, border politician by William Earl Parrish( Book )

2 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Part sourthern, part northern, and wholly western, Missouri symbolized the border. From the inception of the compromise that bore its name until the Civil War, the state was a battle ground with the abolition or extension of slavery the issue, and its travial was, in microcosm, the agony of the Union. David Rice Atchison was the leader of the proslavery forces. Though he fell short of heroic stature in an age of giants, his influence was in many respects greater than that of contemporaries who played larger roles. He possessed all the qualities that usually insure political success, but as Mr. Parrish shows in this biography, the circumstances of time and place condemned him to second rank."--American Historical Review
