Summary

It was a year of contrasts, culture, and crises. In 1857, James Buchanan presided over a United States in which African Americans were not regarded as citizens and slaves could not sue for their freedom. Queen Victoria sat comfortably on the British throne with Palmerston as her prime minister, while India mutinied. Charlotte Brontë, Charles Baudelaire, Charles Dickens, Gustave Flaubert, William Makepeace Thackeray, and Anthony Trollope were among the many writers with new books published during the year, and new musical offerings by Franz Liszt and Giuseppe Verdi were to be heard in the concert halls. In America an economic crisis led to recession, the collapse of a New York financial institution, and a run on the banks.
