HIS 162(C) - History of The Civil War
MassTransfer Block Code: Humanities/Fine and Performing Arts
This course explores the causes, course, and consequences of the American Civil War. The primary goal of the course is to understand the multiple meanings of this transformative event in American history. Those meanings may be defined in many ways: national, sectional, racial, constitutional, individual, social, intellectual, or moral. Five broad themes are closely examined: the crisis of union and disunion in an expanding republic; slavery, race, and emancipation as a national problem; personal experience and social process; the experience of modern, total war for individuals and society; and the political and social challenges of Reconstruction.
