History Comes Alive at the Governor Oglesby Mansion
The Southern Honor Culture and the American Civil War with Millikin History Professor Dr. Dan Monroe

In the antebellum South, a peculiar and distinctive culture of honor developed. Men were expected to act in a certain manner, to tolerate no insults. That culture, which was tied to slavery as an institution, had a unique and significant effect on American politics in the years preceding the Civil War. For Northern politicians like Abraham Lincoln and Richard Oglesby, the honor culture complicated efforts to find a solution to the slavery controversy.

Sunday, September 24
