The Civil War 150 Years Later
Professor Bob Senkewicz, History Department
Co-Sponsored by the OSHER Lifelong Learning Institute

When the newest members of the Gianera Society graduated, the U.S. was celebrating the Civil War centennial. Fifty years later, we look at how the Civil War is viewed now. What has changed in our views of Lincoln, Grant, Lee, slavery, states' rights, and the other issues that rocked our nation from 1861-1865?
