The Civil War
with Jim Strong
The American Civil War was one of great complexity and brutality. Families were literally torn apart and in some cases nearly exterminated. The first modern concept of “total war” evolved. This course will explore several aspects of the war, including combat heroes of lessor stature and the all-important home front. The instructor was born and raised in western Tennessee, and has ancestors whose lives were ended in the conflict.
