The Foundry Series: Resistance During the Civil War

Not everyone in the United States or Confederacy agreed with the War, and many people chose to actively oppose it. How did anti-war Democrats (known as “Copperheads”) in the Union voice their objections to the actions of Abraham Lincoln and the Republican Party? How did pro-Union southerners demonstrate their commitment while living in the Confederacy? Dr. Jennifer L. Weber and Dr. Robert C. Kenzer will address these questions in a discussion moderated by Claire Gastañaga, Executive Director of the ACLU of Virginia.
