In which John Green teaches you how the Civil War played a large part in making the United States the country that it is today. He covers some of the key ways in which Abraham Lincoln influenced the outcome of the war, and how the lack of foreign intervention also helped the Union win the war. John also covers the technology that made the Civil War different than previous wars. New weapons helped to influence the outcomes of battles, but photography influenced how the public at large perceived the war. In addition, John gets into the long term effects of the war, including the federalization and unification of the United States. All this plus homesteading, land grant universities, railroads, federal currency, and taxes.

Hey teachers and students - Check out CommonLit's free collection of reading passages and curriculum resources to learn more about the events of this episode. The end of the Civil War is often defined in terms of President Lincoln's choices, as he issued the Emancipation Proclamation and delivered The Gettysburg Address in 1963, saw an increase of black soldiers in the Civil War, and delivered his Second Inaugural Address on how he planned to rebuild the nation after the war. Those plans were cut short when he was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth. Read more about those plans here: https://www.commonlit.org/texts/president-lincoln-s-second-inaugural-address
