Documents and Debates Seminar: A War for Union or Abolition? hosted by Phoenix Union High School District (Phoenix, AZ)

August 27, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm

States’ rights or slavery? Preservation of the Union or abolition? The debate over the ‘true’ causes of the Civil War is still alive among historians and many Americans. A Documents and Debates Seminar consists of two sessions of background study, rooted in original sources, and a final session drawn from one of our two Documents and Debates collections, through which teachers can re-engage in the debates had in this tumultuous period of American History.

All registrants will be provided with a paper copy of the readings in advance of the program.

Lunch will be provided, along with a certificate for continuing education. Agenda and reader will be available by early August here.
