FRIDAY 7th September 2018 at 1.00pm
This hour-long talk will serve both as an introduction to the topic and as a taster for Ronnie Hanna's upcoming course entitled 'Slavery: The Issue that Changed America'. We will explore how slavery took root in the American South and set the nation on course for bloody conflict – and consider the unique role played by Abraham Lincoln in both freeing the slaves and preserving the United States. Both achievements of course came at a high price in terms of the loss of human life – including that of the President himself – and the 12-week programme that begins on 11 September will analyse in detail the struggle between North and South, and why the forces of the Union prevailed.
