What Caused the Civil War?

Date: Wednesday, June 23, 2010
Time: 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m.

Did slavery cause the Civil War? Or was it a conflict over states' rights? Or was it the inevitable clash between an industrial society and an agrarian society? Or was it a struggle between two imperialistic powers over territorial expansion? Or was it really about slavery after all? Find out how recent scholarship answers these questions.
