About this product
- DescriptionSenator Thomas Hart Benton was a towering figure in Missouri politics. Elected in 1821, he was the new state's first senator, and he served in Washington, DC for more than thirty years. The foremost Democratic leader in the Senate, he claimed to represent the rights of the common man and was a champion against the monied interests of the East. In his book, Ken S. Mueller provides a comprehensive portrait of Senator Benton. Mueller evaluates Benton's career in light of his attitudes toward slavery, Indian removal, the Mexican borderlands, among other topics, and reveals Benton's importance to a new generation of readers.
