Podcast # 21: Events of the 1850s

The Women’s Suffrage movement

We have been building up to the Civil War for quite some time. Sectionalism, lack of national unity and the issue of the extension of slavery into new territories are at an all-time high. The events of the 1850s will make the Civil War all but inevitable.

After the Mexican American War ended in 1848, sectional tensions were at an all-time high. In 1849, The Whigs were victorious in electing their candidate Zachary Taylor as President. Zachary Taylor was a General in the US army and gained notoriety in both the second Seminole war and the Mexican American War.

The Election of 1860 saw 4 Presidential Hopefuls. The Democratic Party had split.

Podcast # 23: The Life, Presidency and Assassination of Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln is one of our former presidents whose legacy has taken on a life of its own. He is remembered for a great many things. A log cabin, being honest, a rail splitter, a lawyer, a great orator, a former president, a great emancipator. In all of those descriptions, much of Abraham Lincoln is lost. He wasn’t always a supporter of emancipation; those views would evolve over the course of his lifetime. His views on racial equality are not what most people would expect them to be.

The Civil was lasted from 1861-1865 and is the bloodiest war in American history. A war, that originally was thought would only last a few months. A conflict, that had been simmering for decades finally erupted with the attack on Fort Sumter, South Carolina in April of 1861. Confederate soldiers attacked the fort and quickly won it.

Podcast # 25: The Civil War Part II

A Political War vs a Moral War

At the start of the Civil war this was a war to preserve the Union. It was not at the outset a war to end slavery that wouldn’t happen until 1863 with the Emancipation Proclamation which we will talk more about.

Major Battles:

There were many battles during the civil war. It would be impossible to discuss all of them. Battles were fought in the southeast, in the deep south like Vicksburg and in the west in battles like Shiloh.

Podcast # 26: Reconstruction and the Presidency of Andrew Johnson

Reconstruction

The time period of Reconstruction is from 1865-1877. The majority of the south was in ruins. There was so much that needed to be done Politically, Socially and Economically. Imagine looking at a large glass vase that has fallen and shattered into hundreds and thousands of pieces. Where do you begin? How do you put this back together in a way that it functions, can you repair it in a way where you can’t tell that it had been broken apart? 12 years wasn’t nearly enough time. Reconstruction ends not because the work they had set out to complete was finished.
