American Civil War! More than bullets and bombs!

Dr. Fred Bailey retired ACU History Professor will be teaching about the Civil War at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Texas Tech University, Abilene.

This class includes six lectures to thoroughly examine the conflict’s causes as well as highlight historical stresses which continue to impact American culture.
