IHS Webcast: How Should Libertarians View the Civil War?

“May God save the Union!” “The South shall rise again!” How should YOU feel about the Civil War? The arguments for and against both sides abound, and recently this question has raised quite a stir on the blogosphere.

Join us on Thursday, September 12th at 3:00 P.M. EDT for a stimulating discussion on how classical liberals should approach the War Between the States, hosted by the IHS’ own Civil War expert, Dr. Phil Magness. Phil will break down the arguments for and against both sides, and why so many people approach this thorny question the wrong way. We hope you’ll join us for the lecture and the discussion to follow after. Click here to register.

    I can’t remember the details of Robbins’ piece, but I remember thinking it didn’t really address the multiple issues going on.
