One-Day Seminar: Missouri Statehood, Dred Scott, and the Coming of the Civil War, hosted by the MO Humanities Council (St. Louis, MO)

March 6 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join TeachingAmericanHistory.org and the Missouri Humanities Council for this one-day Seminar on the interplay between the debate over Missouri statehood, the infamous Dred Scott v. Sandford case, and the longterm causes of the Civil War. This discussion-based program will be led by Dr. Dan Monroe and will consist of three 90-minute sessions, each focused on a set of primary source readings. Documents and program information will be sent to all registrants in advance of the program date, and PDF copies of the same will be available here by 1 January 2019.

This program is free to all teachers, includes a certificate for continuing education, and lunch. It is entirely discussion-based, with the intention of providing teachers an opportunity to dig deeper into these topics through documents only.


Materials available after 1 JAN 19
