Refighting the Civil War

For the Spring term we will continue with Part 2 of our look at two of the greatest leaders in the Civil War.  Each came to have the respect and admiration of their entire section – and eventually the nation.  Robert E. Lee became the most admired Confederate early on; Abraham Lincoln was derided and called ugly names until almost the end of the war, but is now revered and widely considered the greatest president. Lee’s standing has been high in the north and the south almost since the war ended. We will begin each session by viewing DVDs on Lincoln, Lee and their associates followed by ample time for comments and discussion.
