Antiwar Patriots brings together some of the greatest-if largely forgotten-writings of the American antiwar tradition, from the War of 1812 to the present. Featured is Daniel Webster, one of America7;s great orators, denouncing military conscription in 1814 as unconstitutional and immoral, two years after Congress and President James Madison joined forces to declare war against Great Britain and its Canadian colony. The authors7; treatment of the Mexican War includes a forgotten antiwar speech by Abraham Lincoln, as well as the senate7;s censure of President James Polk for having launched a war under false pretenses, and early protests by the war7;s opponents out of fear that it would help expand slavery.
