As we saw, the issue of how the people of the U.S. got to the impasse that led to the “Late Unpleasantness” is a complicated on….and one that PHDs (and others) will continue to argue about. Over the next few days, I’m going to look for media that deals with the road to war.
Be sure to explore this page. I have socked it with links to some of the most scholarly and interesting blogs available, and the Resources let you explore important data, media and primary sources.
Looking forward to getting smart together!
