"The Crossroads of Our Being" The Continuing Significance of the American Civil War
When eminent novelist and Civil War chronicler Shelby Foote called the Civil War "the crossroads of our being," he indicated the central significance of the war to our national consciousness. In this fourth session of Wesleyan Windows on the World, four scholars will reflect on various aspects of this seminal event, including its military, political, and artistic elements. Participants will have the opportunity to join in our national conversation about the Civil War as we observe the sesquicentennial of our nation's defining conflict.
