Description

The life and death of "Colonal" James Fisk Jr. is a remarkable tale involving love, money, corruption and murder. This biography captures his story from humble beginnings in small-town America of the 1830s and 40s to his scandalous death at the age of 37, by which time he had become one of the most notorious and colourful characters in the history of Wall Street. Despite facing danger during the American Civil War and the New York riots and forming rivalries with American business giants such as Daniel Drew and Cornelius Vanderbilt, Fisk still found time to try out a few different occupations such as circus showman, adulterous lover and shipping magnate.show more
