American Rambler Episode 138: Michael F. Holt

Here’s an excellent discussion between host Dr. Colin Woodward and Professor Michael F. Holt.

The episode’s description includes, “Retired historian Michael Holt is one of the most accomplished writers on antebellum politics. A professor at the University of Virginia for decades, he is perhaps best known for his grand 1999 book, The Rise and Fall of the American Whig Party. He is also the author of The Political Crisis of the 1850sThe Election of 1860, and other books. His most recent, and last (he tells us) is about president, soldier, hard drinker, and empath Franklin Pierce.”
