"The Civil War" The Better Angels of Our Nature (1865) (TV Episode 1990) Poster

Barbara Fields: Herself - Historian


  • Barbara Fields - Historian : It is *the* event in American history in that it is the moment that made the United States as a nation. And I mean that in different ways. The United States was obviously a nation when it adopted the Constitution, but it adopted a Constitution that required a war to be sorted out, and therefore required a war to make a real nation out of what was a theoretical nation as it was designed at the Constitutional Convention.
