HIST 4053 - Civil War and Reconstruction
Prerequisite(s): Six hours of history or consent of the chair.
The bitter sectional conflicts touched off by slavery and westward expansion provoked a mounting crisis in the 1850’s–ending in the election of 1860. The course then turns to the battlefield and the question of why the South lost. It concludes with an examination of the attempt to reintegrate the South into the Union and the angry social and political clash that was precipitated.
