Subjects discussed will include slave power and nativism in Antebellum, succession, emancipation and immigrants rights.

John H. Matsui graduated from Princeton.  His current research focuses on conflicting political ideologies in Civil War America and their effect on Union military occupation policies in Virginia. His current post as Assistant Professor of History at the Virginia Military Institute – near the tombs of Robert E. Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson – is most ideal.
