"Foreign Events and Views that Impacted
the American Civil War"
Dr. Art Pitz, professor emeritus of Blackhawk College, Moline will present a review of the views and events outside the US which impacted how foreign powers analyzed the Civil War. Topics will include, but not be limited to, the Corn Laws in England, famine in Ireland, the 1848 revolutions in Europe, reforms in Egypt in the mid 1800's, and immigration patterns from abroad. How did they influence thought prior to the outbreak of American hostilities?
Dr. Pitz, a Moline resident, is a much requested speaker on historical topics and foreign affairs in the QC region.
