This is a book about courage and patriotism. — It tells the dramatic stories of a number of American politicians of various political and regional alligiances whose one overriding loyalty was to the United States and to the right as God gave them to see it. — They range from born aristocrats to self-made men. Some are well-known, some almost forgotten. But all of them, in the face of dreadful consequences, exhibited a special kind of greatness. These stories about them remind us sharply that there is, in addition to a courage with which men must die, a courage by which men must live.
