June 8, 2024 – Session 2: Causes and Consequences of the American Civil War

Session 2 will examine both the causes and consequences of the American Civil War.  Questions on both periods do appear on Guide exams and this can serve as a good refresher.   Topics include the outbreak of the Civil War, the key leaders involved, and the many different solutions put forth to resolve the Nation’s difficulties.  But the war’s end does not end the story. The assassination of President Abraham Lincoln only complicates the difficult issue of reconstructing both the political and social systems of the defeated south. We will look at the final days of the war and the many years of struggle ahead up to our present time. The consequences of our nation’s bloodiest war continue to haunt us today.
