Lecture Description

Based on Doyle’s book, The Cause of All Nations:  An International History of the American Civil War, this lecture shows the American conflict as part of an historic international struggle between liberal republicanism and reactionary forces in the US, Europe and Latin America. It interprets the Civil War through the eyes of foreign journalists, political leaders, and soldiers who viewed the war as an epic battle that would decide the future of democracy and freedom for all nations.
