Course Description

This course examines the meaning of the American Civil War from a variety of vantage points, with an emphasis on political rather than military perspectives. Past assignments have included a biography of John Brown, a book-length description of a major Civil War battle that led to the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation, a contemporary travelogue focused on individuals still passionately interested in the Civil War, a movie ("Glory"), and a battlefield visit. NOTE: We meet on six Sunday evenings: September 17, October 22, November 12, February 11, March 18, and April 8. If you miss one session, you can still pass the course if you write a 5-page make-up paper. Missing two or more sessions will put you below the law school's 80% attendance requirement.
