American Slavery from the Revolution to the Civil War, with tutor Lawrence Goldman.

We shall consider the history of slavery from its colonial foundations in the 17th century; its crucial political significance in the 19th century as the cause of the division between North and South; and the different experiences of the slaves themselves. American slavery has been studied extensively by historians and we shall examine their contrasting views. Refreshments of tea, coffee, biscuits/cake provided for all attendees in the generous morning and afternoon breaks. All are welcome.
