U.S. Representative Thaddeus Stevens was an implacable foe of slavery and an equally solid champion of equal rights for African Americans. This political biography traces his career and shows how his early life and education shaped his political positions. Landon Woodson offers a solid, easy-to-follow narration. His steady voice and engaging style carry the narrative along nicely. He adds emotion and a bit of extra volume when presenting direct, impassioned quotes from Stevens. The author's straightforward style translates well to audio, and Woodson takes full advantage. Listeners who know Stevens only from the movie LINCOLN will learn much about his influential role in the founding of the Republican Party before the Civil War and in Reconstruction afterward.
