Turning Points in the History of the South: Part 2 - The Civil War Era (Prerecorded)

John Boles

The South has long been a region considered different from the rest of the nation, although in colonial days the South was precisely what promoters in England expected and wanted colonies to be and New England was the exception. But that all changed. This course examines developments that shaped the history and culture of the region.

Part II: The Civil War Era
Lecture two explores how the southern region evolved away from the northern states, how economic, cultural, social, and political issues led to the South breaking away to form the Confederacy, producing the Civil War. That war, the deadliest in American history, profoundly changed the South—and the nation as a whole.
