On Tuesday night, July 27th, Ed Cooney will continue his trip through America's past.
Back in May, Mr. Cooney suggested that nations, just like people, are conceived, go through infancy, childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, mature adulthood and perhaps even old age. So, where was America between 1845 and 1860 that era when America slid into civil strife?
