The Adams brothers saw barely concealed buccaneers and cardsharps in the men behind the Erie Railroad scandal of the late 1860s-a scandal that convulsed the money market, occupied the courts, agitated legislatures, and perplexed the country. The chicanery and the scoundrels involved were well known to the railroad commissioner Charles Francis Adams and his famous brother Henry, for they had more than once witnessed and reported the financial machinations that rocked the nations economy in the years immediately following the Civil War.

Chapters of Erie and Other Essays was first published in 1886 and reissued by Cornell University Press with a Foreword by Robert H. Elias in 1956.
