Thomas Jefferson’s Union

This is a great discussion between Gary Gallagher and Peter Onuf on Thomas Jefferson’s view of Union and how it affected Lincoln and the Civil War.  The video’s description reads:  “Professors Gary Gallagher and Peter Onuf talked about the tenets of federalism and the meaning behind the idea of a union of states from the perspective of President Thomas Jefferson. They spoke about Thomas Jefferson’s belief in the separation of races, President Lincoln’s preservation of the Union during the Civil War, and how Thomas Jefferson would view today’s U.S. government.”
