American Civil War and Aftermath

with William Tyler MBE

Classes & Courses

Less than a century after American independence the young country went to war with itself.  The North versus The South.  The differences centred on the rights of States versus the rights of the Federal Government.  The key issue was one of slavery.  The war was bitterly fought and has some claim to be the first modern war.  The immediate aftermath was one of continuing division – a division which still breaks the surface of American life and politics today.
