HIS 228 - A Slaveholders’ Rebellion: The American Civil War

More ink has been spilled in writing about the American Civil War than any other event in the history of our nation. From the perspective of Southern rebels, the war was one to preserve the lucrative system of enslaving human beings for the use of their labor. Most northerners entered the war hoping to preserve the Union. By the end of the conflict, four million formerly enslaved men, women, and children enjoyed a hard-won liberation. This course will examine the causes of the Civil War, its prosecution, and the process of Reconstruction that followed.
