The Reintegration of American History

Slavery and the Civil War

William W. Freehling

This provocative collection of the significant essays of William Freehling, one of the most important historians writing about the period up to the Civil War, is a fascinating look at the question of slavery and how the South in particular responded to the problem. Focusing on subjects such as the Constitution and slavery, slave rebellion (the Denmark Vesey uprising), attempts to banish all blacks to Africa, attempts to expand slavery in the United States and overseas, and the division in the South over whether to secede from the Union or not, this provocative and accessible study is for use in courses on the Civil War, Southern History, and the History of Slavery.
