Reading, discussion and signing of “America Aflame” which offers the first major new interpretation of the Civil War era since James M. McPherson’s Battle Cry of Freedom. Where other scholars have seen the conflict as a triumph of freedom, Goldfield paints it as America’s greatest failure: a breakdown of society caused by the infusion of evangelical religion into the world of politics. Mr. Goldfield is the author or editor of fifteen books mostly dealing with the history of the American South, two of which received the Mayflower Award for Non-Fiction.
