The American Civil War
as seen through the collections of the
Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center
Boston University Professor of History, Professor Nina Silber , discusses the North's unbridled hostility toward Jefferson Davis, and the ridicule often made of him in the press. Professor Silber also discusses her interest in the mundane historical objects, such as the ledger of a slave trader, that provide important historical evidence of the time.
