Summary "Courage in the People's House tells the gripping stories of nine individuals who served in the US House of Representatives--the "People's House"--during a span of over one hundred years, from the 1870s to the 1990s. From the first African American to serve in the House, to immigrants elected at the dawn of the 20th century, all were trailblazers who made significant contributions to the country"-- Provided by publisher.
