"The small student to faculty ratio was a real benefit in my preparation towards my teaching career. It enabled me to get to know my professors well and come to them for help with anything I needed."

Beginning with a dramatic indictment of slavery, this first episode
dramatically evokes the cause of war, from the Cotton Kingdom of the South
to the northern abolitionists who opposed it. Here are the burning
questions of Union and States' Rights. John Brown at Harper's Ferry, and
the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860, the firing on Fort Sumter and the
jubilant rush to arms on both sides. Along the way, the series' major
figures are introduced--Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses
S. Grant and a host of less well-known but equally vivid characters. The
episode comes to a climax with the disasterous Union defeat at Manassas,
where both sides now learn it is to be a very long war.
