I really enjoyed this lecture series and it was fairly unbelievably timed I started it about a week before the protests started for the removal of the statues of Jackson and Lee in Charlottesville I knew the basics of the civil war but Gallagher did an excellent job of going into enough to properly fill in so much of the pertinent information and then tying it all together in a way that was uite enlightening especially given these current eventsHe starts with the build up to war and the sentiments on either side that moved us all in that direction both on the legislative and popular levels I found myself regularly surprised by the mixture of complexity and simplicity of what was actually going one for example there were so many things that contributed to the beginning of the war that you would be hard pressed to even compile an exhaustive list all those things were exasperated by the physical and cultural separation between the north and the south so it became easy to villainize and essentially dehumanise your opponents to the point where war became palatable but had the issue of slavery not been there had there not been this central disunity there would not have been a warGallagher did a great job of describing many opposing views on the various controversial aspects of the war but then he would err on the side of going with actual writings during the time as opposed to later interpretations and when there was general uncertainty he would not put much weight on the topic He also did a good job of spending time discussing the war itself intermingled with political impetuses popular opinions international opinions and the impact that the war had on the various aspects of the civilian population as well as on those actually involved I highly recommend this series as it was enlightening engaging and very apt during our current timeSpoiler AlertThe North wins but Lincoln is assassinated

Finally finished it Before this course the Civil War was a blur to me All I knew was North v South Union v Confederacy and of course slavery Professor Gallagher does a tremendous job of laying out all the major and minor characters of the war He takes you to the battlefields and the skirmishes into the halls of congress and the senate and into the lives of the presidents of the US and the Confederate states of America He dispels the myths of men like Grant Lee Jackson and Sherman He teaches us about how these men along with many other commanders and politicians pulled the strings in what many Americans at the time called the Rich mans war and the poor mans fight This course helped me see clearly the movements of troops throughout these legendary battles and the timelines I also learned a great deal about Lincoln and his true motives for the Emancipation Proclamation the 13th amendment and just how hypocritical Jefferson Davis and Alexander Stephens were from the very start of secession The American Civil War is a really fascinating history There are so many great stories that go largely unheard of Stories of endurance courage cowardice horror comedy defeat and victory I highly recommend this Great Course to any history buff and especially anyone who is fascinated with the history of the American Civil War If you don t want to trudge through the flourishing language of McPherson s Battle Cry of Freedom if you want the facts in a concise delivery then this Great Course is for you I absolutely loved it

I read The Killer Angels in 8th grade and I ve been obsessed with Gettysburg and the Civil War ever since I have a 20 minute long If I were ever on Drunk History this would be my story tirade I go on occasionally when I ve had some drinks and the people around me don t know the entire history of the HL Hunley which of course they don t It s a great story I promise I imagine watching a mid 30s woman from Oregon suddenly burst into a detailed history of the Civil War takes people aback I recently had a conversation with an old co worker who I ve known for years but the Civil War has never come up before with us becausewhy would it Then he said he was going home to Franklin Tennessee for Christmas and I said Oh there was a great Civil War battle there Totally useless lots of generals died He looked at me and said Where the hell did that come from I m no Civil War scholar but I obviously enjoy it I was the perfect audience for this lecture from the Great Courses I can t imagine who else it would be good for There was so much information here it seemed like you needed at least a passing knowledge of the Civil War in order to learn about the Civil War About half the lectures were straight up battle history about flanking maneuvers and digging trenches and full frontal assaults I loved it but I m not an objective opinion I don t know who else would like itThe narrator Professor Gallagher had a great point of view of the whole war and I loved hearing his opinions I especially loved his use of primary sources and his constant refrain of look at what people thought at the time The dichotomy of Confederate arguments pre vs post war was disheartening I have a pity for the South I ve never felt before I don t think it has ever really recovered from this war a wound in its side that has festered for the last 150 yearsI want to visit a battlefield than anything now How have I never been to one The best I can claim is Arlington Cemetery and Robert E Lee s houseUpdateI have now been to a battlefield YAY The Battle of Stones River outside Murfreesboro TN Check out this anachronistic photo I took during the maneuvers of the dayDoesn t that just scream AMERICAN SOUTH
