Season 2, Episode 1. In the first episode of the second season of Historical Controversies, Chris Calton gives a revisionist look at the antebellum period leading up to the Civil War.

Correction: I refer to the “destruction of the first party-system,” when I meant to say “second party-system.” In the episode on the Election of 1856, I give a correct account of the party-system changes.

Note: The views expressed on Mises.org are not necessarily those of the Mises Institute.
