Join Mickey on a journey of the unique role and involvement of Maryland in the Civil War through a thorough review of Maryland’s Civil War experience.  This semester, continue learning about Maryland’s role in Part II of this course. You need not have taken Part I to learn from this continuation (in fact, you can review sessions from Part I in our Course Library).

In Part II, Mickey will continue by covering the more notable Union and Confederate leaders, focusing on the Eastern Shore, and looking at the postwar outcomes and repercussions, including ‘Lost Cause Mythology.’

Session 1.  Notable Union and Confederate Leaders

Session 2.  Eastern Shore Focus

Session 3.  Postwar Outcomes and Repercussions – Lost Cause Mythology

(Part I of this course opened last semester with a prelude to the Civil War that covered Maryland’s demographics at the time, as well as the influence of Baltimore on the political environment and the outbreak of hostilities. The more significant campaigns and battles in Maryland were covered.)

What to Expect:  This is a lecture series, with questions encouraged. You can expect a detailed, factual review of the politics and events of Maryland’s Civil War, as well as handouts. This course is expected to provide a realistic understanding of the events of Maryland’s involvement in the Civil War.  As such, this will be a detailed, non-mythological review of the unique role and involvement of Maryland in the Civil War and a thorough military, political, social, and economic review of Maryland’s Civil War experience.
