Slavery, Secession, and the Civil War

Here’s Professor Susan Schulten of the University of Denver giving a lecture on slavery and secession in her class on the Civil War Era.

The video’s description reads, “History Professor Susan Schulten discussed the causes of America’s Civil War, including President Abraham Lincoln’s refusal to allow slavery to expand into new territories. Professor Schulten explained that Lincoln refused to recognize the Confederacy as legitimate and viewed secession as illegal. The class took place at the University of Denver.”
