John C. Breckinridge rose to prominence during one of the most turbulent times in our nation's history. Widely respected even by his enemies for his dedication to moderate liberalism, Breckinridge's charisma and integrity led to his election as vice president at age thirty-five, the youngest in America's history. After a decade of being out of print, ""Breckinridge; Statesman, Soldier, Symbol"" returns as the quintessential biography of one of Kentucky's great moderates. Historian William C. Davis sheds light on Breckinridge's life throughout three key periods, spanning his career as a celebrated statesman, heroic soldier, and proponent of reconciliation. A true Kentucky hero, 'Old Breck's' bravery in battle, dedication to the pursuit of truth, and unique ability to win the loyalty of others rank him alongside Henry Clay and Simon Kenton. Drawing from a remarkable collection of sources, including previously unknown documents and letters, as well as the papers of Breckinridge's associates and extensive aid from the Breckinridge family, Davis presents the legacy of a man often overlooked.
WILLIAM C. DAVIS is the author of more than forty books, including Three Roads to the Alamo. He serves as professor of history and director of programs for the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia.
