When a Presidential Election Led to Civil War

Past event
Jun 16, 2024, 2 to 3 PM

We are hearing threats of civil war if our current presidential election doesn't go a certain way. The election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860 led to the Civil War which resulted in over 700,000 casualties. Less we think this was unique, St. Michael's College Professor Emeritus Douglas Slaybaugh will analyze the elections of 1800, 1824, and 1876 which threatened similar results.
