The Nation Before and After the Civil War

Here’s a panel discussion moderated by Eric Foner on the United States both before and after the Civil War.  From the video description:  “Professor Eric Foner moderated a roundtable discussion on the state of the nation before and after the Civil War and the creation of a new social, political, and economic order. The panelists also responded to questions from members of the audience.

“ ‘The Nation Before and After’ was the third panel of the symposium, ‘The Civil War: Fresh Perspectives.’ The symposium on November 20, 2010, was held in the McGowan Theater in conjunction with the National Archives exhibition, ‘Discovering the Civil War,’ marking the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. It was presented in partnership with the Foundation for the National Archives, the University of Richmond, the Lincoln Group of the District of Columbia, and the Civil War Round Table of the District of Columbia.”
