About this course:

The Civil War was the bloodiest and most contentious conflict in U.S. History, as the United States was torn apart by what many consider to be the first modern war. From 1861 to 1865, the nation was divided as brother fought brother in a war that remains a defining moment in U.S. History. This course provides an overview of this watershed moment in American development as it examines the origins and outcomes of the Civil War. Topics include: regional growth and development in the United States prior to the war, burgeoning tensions between the North and South during the 1850s, as well as the election of Abraham Lincoln and the secession crisis that precipitated the conflict. Additionally, we address the war’s progression and its changing meaning, as what began as a bitter dispute over Union and states' rights ended as a struggle for the extension of freedom within the United States.
