AMERICA'S CIVIL WAR

Course Description: Course description: The most important war America has fought was the one which kept our nation together. It was truly more revolutionary than our Revolutionary War in forging a nation without slavery, a strong federal government, and Lincoln's presidential leadership that stretched America to the Pacific Ocean.
