Bitter sectional differences based around the institution of slavery were not solved in the halls of government. Abraham Lincoln’s “house divided” statement proved prophetic, as the greatest test ever faced by the United States came to bear on April 12, 1861. On that day, Southern forces launched an attack on Fort Sumter, which was occupied by federal troops in the Charleston harbor. It took four years of fierce fighting, resulting in the loss of hundreds of thousands of lives, to decide the course of our nation’s story. Eight park rangers will present weekly classes throughout this course.
National Park Service rangers have participated with OLLI in scores of thematic courses, special events, and trips since 2001.
