19th Century Senate History

I am looking for histories of the U.S. Senate in the 19th century.

Specifically, I'm looking for books about the period immediately before the Civil War and the Gilded Age, but recommendations for books about the Senate in any part of the 1800s would be welcome (don't forget bopgraphy!)

Press Gallery, by Don Ritchie is a pretty comprehensive history of Congress, told via the press coverage. I read it in college. Ritchie is currently the Historian of the Senate, so he knows a thing or two about the subject.

Blah, that should say "biography."
