William Bierly has researched deep into the origins and history of In God We Trust. He tells the full story, and introduces: Reverend Mark Watkinson, the preacher who rallied the Treasury Department to 'recognize Almighty God in some form on our coins' . . . Mint Director James Pollock, who was the former governor of Pennsylvania, 'a commanding figure' who worked toward the same vision . . . and Treasury Secretary Salmon P. Chase, who marshalled our nation�s vast resources and financed the war with bold innovations. President Abraham Lincoln is featured in the story, along with some military generals, wealthy industrialists, poets and artists, powerful bankers, and everyday Americans, North and South.
William shows how the Civil War changed the foundations of modern American banking and finance.
