Civil War and Reconstruction

Civil War and Reconstruction

The Civil War and Reconstruction was arguably one of the most catastrophic and defining events in American history. For Lincoln, the sole purpose was to preserve the Union. His assassination set in motion a model of Reconstruction that differed from his expressed vision. This seminar will look at the war, broadly defined, the role Emancipation played and its effects on Reconstruction

This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. Teachers will receive a Letter of Attendance at the conclusion of the seminar.
