The Tennessee Valley Civil War Round Table introduces a tutorial for those interested in understanding the origin, conduct, and impact of the American Civil War i.e., officially “the War Between the States”. Our intent is to address key elements relevant to understanding the era that redefined America. If you’re a student of the Civil War this tutorial is a framework for understanding and further study.
The American Civil War was a momentous event in our history and it changed American Society. Discover the causes; the political compromises, the economic impact, the military impact, and the impact of war on the American home.
The TVCWRT Tutorial is divided into nine parts.
