  • HIST 119: The Civil War and Reconstruction Era, 1845-1877

    Complete OpenYale course consisting of 27 recorded lectures by Professor David W. Blight.

    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.

    Edit: This course is absolutely FREE.

    When I first saw this I was like, meh......I can't afford Yale anyhow. But clicking on the link I see that it is an OPEN course that anyone can read or listen to the lectures & such. Very interesting & I may have to read/listen through it.
