Art historian Joan Stack takes us back to the 1850s to explore the concept of democracy presented in George Caleb Bingham's paintings, "Stump Speaking," "County Election," and "Verdict of the People." Stack considers how the pictures reflect the contentious pre-Civil War era and the potential for a shared love of democracy to unify a divided nation.
