John M. Taylor looks at the issues that led to the War Between the States/Civil War, its destruction, and the reinvention of the republic. The conflict between the agrarian South and the industrial North saw Jeffersonian States' Rights battle the Republican Party centralizers, led by Abraham Lincoln. We now witness the results.
