HIS 203 Civil War Era in American History

Explores the causes, course, and consequences of the American Civil War, from the Colonial period to the 21st Century, in order to understand the multiple meanings of a transforming event in American history. Students will explore the meanings of the war as defined in many ways: national, sectional, racial, gender, constitutional, individual, social, intellectual, or moral. Students will closely examine four broad themes: 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. This course is one of the Statewide Guaranteed transfer courses: GT-HI1.
