Mid 19th Century American History

19th Century American History

The history of the Mid Nineteenth Century / Civil War Era can easily be dominated by the war and slavery. The war and slavery effected all Americans, but war and slavery were not the only thing happening.

This reading group looks at the history of this era from a non-war non-slavery focus. The war and slavery will be discussed, but from the perspective of other issues (eg: Railroads, Native Americans, Farming and Cattle Frontiers), from c.1840-1890.
