Course Details

American Civil War: The Situation, The People, The Events
Since this course is intended to provide an overview to a brutal and prolonged conflict, we will begin by examining the situations (social, physical, economic and military) in the United States before and at the start of the civil war. You will learn about some of the key personalities who were relevant to a study of the war and learn some basic terms that need to be understood. As the war begins, relevant strategies as well as opening and early events will be discussed. As the war progresses, several key battles, developments and consequences will be described. As the war concludes, you will learn about the situation post war. If time permits, you will learn about the daily life of Johnny Reb and Billy Yank, Civil War Monuments and bad behaviour, crime and punishment.
