AMERICA'S CIVIL WAR

OSH 139 / Non Credit
Course taught in: English
Locations:

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.  It killed more Americans than all the wars America has fought since then.  The results of this powerful event guide our actions in so many ways today. In this 6 week lecture series, we will examine the Civil War through a variety of viewpoints.  OLLI member, Ed Harper, will give one lecture on Southern Plantations and prisoners of war.
