Online Exhibition - A House Divided

Sunday, Aug 2, 2020


A House Divided explores the institution of slavery, the fierce sectionalism of free and slave economics in the rapidly expanding country, and the destructive power of the Civil War.

The text, by Eric Foner, the Dewitt Clinton Professor of History at Columbia Universit, and Olivia Mahoney, Director of Historical Documentation at the Chicago Historical Society, treats the civil war as both a bloody military confrontation and as a catalyst of far-reaching changes in American life.
