Summary: An important contribution to the study of nineteenth-century American culture. Writing with clarity, virgor, and grace, Gorn combines detailed narrative with convincing interpretations.

The great names come to life: Heenan, Yankee Sullivan, Tom Hyer, John Morrissey, and the most famous of all, John L. Sulliv
