Teaching Lincoln and the Civil War
April 8, 2016
San Diego Marriott Mission Valley
San Diego, California
Participants will explore some of the most important issues that arise in teaching the Civil War: the views of America’s founders on equality and slavery, and the subsequent breakdown of consensus regarding principles; the failure to reach a compromise in advance of the secession crisis; and Lincoln’s constitutional understanding in the face of secession and throughout the war.
This seminar is free of charge. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
