Book Signing: Robert Mitchell - Congress and the King of Frauds

The Credit Mobilier scandal rocked Washington in 1873. It ruined reputations, contributed to a massive Republican defeat in the 1874 congressional elections and colored the Mark Twain-Charles Dudley Warner novel, The Gilded Age: a Tale of Today. It validated anxieties about corruption and concentrated economic power as America staggered toward industrialization. Few other political scandals have been so consequential.
