I have created notes for a semester class on the Civil War. This is the 1st set of notes out of 7 -- "Build Up to the American Civil War."
This is the copy for students. The key is a different download.
[I used a few sources to help me: civilwar.org & a book called "The American Civil War: Causes, course and consequences, 1803-77" (4th edition, by Alan Farmer).]
