'1831'

Host Lisa Simeone talks with Louis P. Masur, author of 1831: Year of Eclipse (Hill and Wang/2001). Masur, who teaches history at the City College of New York, talks about some of the key events of 1831: the rise of the abolitionist movement, Nat Turner's rebellion, the tension between states' rights and national priorities, and the arrival of the steam locomotive in the United States.
