This course explores the causes, course, and consequences of the American Civil War, from the 1840s to 1877. The primary goal of the course is to understand the multiple meanings of a transforming event in American history. Those meanings may be defined in many ways: national, sectional, racial, constitutional, individual, social, intellectual, or moral. Four broad themes are closely examined: the crisis of union and disunion in an expanding republic; slavery, race, and emancipation as national problem, personal experience, and social process; the experience of modern, total war for individuals and society; and the political and social challenges of Reconstruction.

David W. Blight is the Class of 1954 Professor of American History and Director of the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance and Abolition at Yale University. He is the author of numerous books, including A Slave No More: Two Men Who Escaped to Freedom, Race and Reunion: The Civil War in American Memory (for which he received the Bancroft, Abraham Lincoln, and Frederick Douglass prizes), and Beyond the Battlefield: Race, Memory, and the American Civil War. He is also the co-author of the bestselling American history textbook, A People and a Nation.

    More than a million African Americans were refugees, homeless, separated from family during years of slavery, wondering what to do now. The white male population had been decimated by the war. The survivors straggled home, many of them wounded. But when they arrived home, they found a strange new world waiting for them.

    You might say these former Confederates got what they deserved; after all, slavery is wrong. But at least for the short term, the morality of slavery was irrelevant. The immediate problem was that it was late spring, and the crops needed to get in the ground before it was too late. The people who knew how to work the fields were demanding wages, yet land owners had no money to pay them until the harvest came in. What could possibly be done?

    After four years of fighting, the Union was restored through the force of arms. The problems of reconstructing the Union were just as difficult as fighting the war had been. Because most of the war was fought in the South, the region was devastated physically and economically. Helping freedmen (ex-slaves) and creating state governments loyal to the Union also presented difficult problems that would take years to resolve.

    The Civil War was a pivotal moment in American history, testing our commitment to the principle of union. In Tennessee, the war devastated cities and farmland, divided communities and families, mobilized both white and black populations, and transformed the economy and the landscape.

    Look up "Sherman s march to the sea", "The Sieges of Richmond, and Vicksburg". The Civil War saw the maturation of intense artillery bombardment, (begun by Napoleon, and not fully tactically appreciated until WW 1). Also, the freeing of the slaves totally gutted the anti-bellum economy, making most existing businesses non- viable as the previously stood.

    In his classic “History of the Peloponnesian War,” Thucydides wrote that the cause of the 20-year conflict between Athens and Sparta was “the growth of Athenian power and the fear this caused in Sparta.”

    In much the same way, it can fairly be said that the cause of the Civil War was the growth of the North’s power both economic and political and the fear this bred in the Southern states. In particular, the Southern states feared that the Northern states would place a limit on the expansion of slavery. Though a number of issues divided North from South in the decades before the war, the issue that proved both paramount and insoluble was slavery in particular, the issue of allowing slavery to expand into territories in the West.
