[Podcast] The American Civil War: Revolution and Counterrevolution

The United States was founded in the cauldron of a revolutionary war against British rule between 1775 and 1783. Almost a century later, in 1861, the country was plunged into a bloody civil war, which Marxists see as the second American Revolution. This podcast, created by our US comrades at Socialist Revolution, explores this dramatic chapter in world history from a Marxist perspective.

The entire series is listed here, covering the background to the war, the events itself, the major players involved and the aftermath.
