HIST 12 The Civil War Era: From Rebellion to Revolution

History 12 explores the most revolutionary and consequential period of U.S. History. It does so by pairing a close and critical reading of primary texts with a survey of leading scholarly interpretations. Across the term, we will also consider how the legacy of the American Civil War still looms large in contemporary American life. The 1860s and 1870s provides an indispensable framework for urgent disputes about the authority and role of government and the persistent inequities of anti-Black racism. Students can expect the course to equip them to track such discussions; a term of sustained historical inquiry will, indeed, allow them to make their own meaningful contributions.
