International Perspectives on the Civil War

Here’s Professor Paul Quigley of Virginia Tech speaking at the Smithsonian Associates on international views of the American Civil War and Abraham Lincoln.

The video’s description reads, “Historian Paul Quigley talked about international perspectives on the U.S. Civil War. He argued that the South’s separatist movement aligned with other European movements for independence and that slavery was integral the world economy.”
