The American Civil War: Then & Now

In this book from Lee Harris, The Next American Civil War, we take a look at how the revolt was sparked against the southern aristocracy. True to it’s name, the war divided the nation bitterly – there were endless townhall meetings, tea parties, protests that brewed amongst the unrest, over what to do with a society that had taken upon themselves to ruling America.

The elites from the well-to-do southern estates were not interested in an ordinary American’s perspective, because they believed they knew what was right for all classes of people, even if that meant curbing freedom of Americans to make their own decisions and choices. The notion of priviledge was changed and after a point, it became the straw that broke the camel’s back…a populist uprising ensued and Americans were left to defend their civil liberties.
