- John C. Fremont and the Violent Election of 1856
- By: John Bicknell
- Narrated by: Bob Souer
- Length: 10 hrs and 32 mins

War between proslavery and antislavery settlers raged in Kansas, a congressman shot an Irish immigrant at a Washington hotel, and another congressman beat a US senator senseless on the floor of the Senate.
