Rene Tyree has an excellent series of posts…that began about a week ago on the causes of the Civil War. Tonight’s installment is part 8 of the series, and it’s really very well done and very insightful. I highly recommend the entire series to you…[it] constitutes one of the best and most concise analyses of the causes of the war I have yet seen.
