The Civil War: America's Second Revolution

Sunday, November 2 at 3:00 p.m.

Presented by: Dr. Len Gougeon

Admission: Free

The Civil War was a defining event in the development of American democracy. The nation came into existence through a Revolution that pitted the thinking of the "Old World," dominated by aristocratic notions of privilege where social status and human rights were based on class, caste, and race, against an alternative ideology based on the concept that "all men are created equal." When the Civil War started, Northerners were shocked to discover that the ruling class in England, who had never accepted the idea of universal equality, sympathized with the Confederacy. This led to a conflict and a "second Revolution" where the democracy of the North not only battled the slaveholding aristocracy of the Confederacy but also, once again, the aristocracy of Great Britain. This presentation examines, for the first time, that second Revolution in its historical and cultural context.  Tickets can be reserved by calling 570-996-1500 and will be available at the door while they last.
