Abstract:

"James P. Jones ... uses newspaper accounts, private letters, and the records of Congress to examine Major General John A. Logan's return to his political and legislative career after the Civil War. Logan emerged from the national conflict a military hero and uncommitted to any political party ... By 1884 his personality and fiercely defended principles had earned him the vice-presidential nomination on the ill-fated Republican ticket. Many writers on this period have portrayed Logan as a corrupt politician, but Jones successfully clears the Illinoisan's record"--Dust jacket.
