1)Consider the South Carolina Ordinance of Secession (VOF page 277), Alexander Stephens “Cornerstone Speech” (VOF 280), and the Confederate Constitution. How central was slavery to the Confederacy? What role did Jeffersonian thought play in Confederate ideology?
2)How and why did the Union’s war effort transition from a war to preserve the union to a war against slavery?
3)How did the Civil War become a “total war” in 1864?
