ID : 717   
« back to classes page
The underlying causes of the American Civil War were systemic and long-standing.  However, in the decades before the Civil War, the failures of the political party system and the branches of government to deal decisively with rising tensions made war inevitable.  This course will discuss the major political events from 1800 to 1860 (with emphasis on the 1850s) as they led to war.
