What an informative 4 part series about slavery and the civil war. Each session was outstanding! These added much more information than what I recall from past high school or college courses!!! Dr Bell provided unique views, explored controversies, presented both sides of the conflict. I truly learned so much. I took copious notes, re-watched each session to ensure that I absorbed all the information and retained it more. Love Dr Bell's style of teaching via zoom, like he is there in the classroom! One of the best series on Context Learning.
Starting with John Brown's raid in 1859, to the shift in objectives for the Union Army in the Civil War, to black soldiers in Union Blue, through to the promise and despair of Reconstruction, Dr. Bell took us through a powerful examination of what it meant to fight slavery in the Civil War era. Each of the four seminars was brilliantly thought out, clearly organized, presented with Dr. Bell's usual eloquence and passion, and enhanced with terrific slides. This is a great course. Because of that, I have taken it twice and highly recommend it.
Slavery as an integral element of the Civil War was incredibly well presented by Dr Bell
Well taught and led as always by Dr Bell
