In the video, Alessandro Barbero discusses the American Civil War, its causes, and its effects on slavery and the economy. He argues that the war was fought primarily over the issue of slavery, and that the south lost because they could not compete with the north's industrial might. He also points out that, even though the war ended slavery, the south continued to fight for their right to secede from the Union.

  • 00:00:00 In 1865, the American Civil War was coming to an end. Five days earlier, General Robert Lee had surrendered at Appomattox Court House, ending the war. President Lincoln was in the theater watching a play when an actor known for his stage work entered the theater. His real name was John Wales Bussey, and he was so famous that no one stopped him when he came in. He had just lost the Civil War, and he was angry. He pulled out a handgun and shot at the light over President Lincoln's head. The officer who was trying to stop him shot and killed him, and Bussey fled the scene. Lincoln was the first U.S. president to die in an assassination attempt, and it wouldn't be the last. Five more U.S. presidents would be killed while in office. The end of the Civil War marked a turning point in American history, as it marked the beginning of the country's modern era. Before the Civil War, the United States was divided between those who supported slavery (the Democratic Party) and those who opposed it (the Republican Party). However, the war created a much more widespread division: between those who supported the Union (the Republican Party) and those who supported the Confederacy (the Democratic Party
  • 00:05:00 In the 1800s, the United States was divided by deep divisions, mainly between the wealthy and the poor, and between the educated and uneducated. In 1861, the country had just over 31 million people, but a decade later, in 1870, this number had grown to over 50 million. The country was growing rapidly, and the divisions between the states were gradually fading away as the country became more industrialized and the population grew more diverse. At the same time, the United States was becoming one of the most equal countries in the world, with disparities in wages and education decreasing. However, the country was still very divided, with the north having a much larger population and more industrial capacity than the south.
  • 00:10:00 In the video, Alessandro Barbero discusses the American Civil War, which he refers to as "La Guerra Civile Americanana." He explains that while the south was once a tobacco-producing region, sugarcane is now the main crop in the south because of the industrial revolution in England. Cotton is also a big crop in the south because of the slave-based economy of the time. Of the 15 U.S. presidents before Lincoln, nine were from the south, and all of them were slave-owners. By the time Lincoln was elected, one-half of all U.S. presidents were from the south. Lincoln himself was a slave-owner, and his predecessor, James Buchanan, was also from the south. The west, which was mostly agricultural at the time, was slowly being colonized by white people and was dominated by businessmen and industrialists. The south was also interested in expanding westward, and the plantation-owning class was eager to move into the west. The video also covers the north-south conflict over control of the Mexican territory during the Mexican-American War of 1848. This war, which we remember primarily from Davy Crockett movies, was fought by the United States in order to gain control
  • 00:15:00 The video discusses the history of the American Civil War, and how the conflict was started by farmers in the south and west who were allied with the colonists in the east, and represented by the Democratic Party. At first, the south voted democratic, but with Reagan they switched to voting republicans. However, the south assumed that their party, the Democratic Party, was also the party of the farmers in the south and the west, and for a hundred years the south has been represented by the Democratic Party. However, in the early 1800s, the party of the south was the Republican Party, and it was also the party of the colonizers in the west - only this coalition began to be threatened in the middle of the 1800s, because against the coalition of farmers and plantation owners, the industrialists in the north counted for always more. At first, when people realize that it is impossible to have an economic policy that is good for everyone and that therefore political conflict is inevitable, nobody thinks about anything else but the political conflict. However, as the industrialists in the north demand the same policies year after year, the political conflict becomes inevitable. This is the first time that people discuss the possibility of secession in America. In 1832, Washington passes a law imposing
  • 00:20:00 Alessandro Barbero discusses the American Civil War in terms of slavery and the system of states' rights. He states that even though the south is united, each state retains its full sovereignty, and the federal government in Washington is only an agent of the states. He argues that the laws of a nation should be equal for all, and this is why John Calo is so troubling to the south. Today, it is easy to see how Calo's arguments go against the spirit of the times, as the discussion of state's rights was very revolutionary in the 1800s. However, Barbero argues that the north's expansionist agenda is ultimately unsuccessful, as the west and the "null" (nothing) does not belong to anyone and is shared by the Indians, but the United States as a whole. However, the north's efforts to create a new nation in the west are ongoing, and today there is a problem because the states are expanding beyond their original borders, taking away territory and resources from other nations without their consent. Barbero argues that the American Civil War is the moment when the process of transforming the states into a nation was finally resolved. However, the problem today is that the states are divided between those that allow slavery and those that have abolished
  • 00:25:00 In the video, Alessandro Barbero discusses the American Civil War and its causes. He points out that, while it is often useful to think of the war as a battle between the North and the South, in reality it was more about the slave-owning south competing with the free north for territory. Barbero then goes on to talk about the role of the Senate in the conflict, explaining that, if the south were to win, they would need two senators from the north to support their cause. He also mentions the 1850s, when the issue of slavery was brought up again and the south attempted to secede from the United States. Barbero finishes the video by discussing the effects of the Civil War on the south, which included the loss of territory and the eventual re-introduction of slavery.
  • 00:30:00 Alessandro Barbero discusses the American Civil War and its effects on slavery, the growth of industry in the north and south, and the eventual end of slavery in the United States. He points out that the abolition of slavery was largely due to the growth of industry in the north, and that the debate surrounding slavery was largely between elites in the north and south. The average person in the north did not care about the abolition of slavery, and supported it mainly because of the economic benefits it had for them.
  • 00:35:00 In the 1800s, there was a debate in the United States over whether to abolish slavery. Some people argued that it was humane to free the slaves, while others argued that it was economically unsound to free slave workers, who would then compete with free laborers. In 1832, the year of America's deadliest slave rebellion, the U.S. Congress passed a resolution to abolish slavery. The first U.S. president to advocate for abolition was George Washington, a slave owner himself. The majority of the southern states opposed abolition, and it was not until after the Civil War that it was finally abolished in all U.S. states.
  • 00:40:00 In the video, Alessandro Barbero discusses the American Civil War and the role of slavery in it. He notes that, at the beginning of the war, the economy of the south was not as rich as it was in the 1800s due to the lack of industries related to the production of sugar, cotton, and tobacco. However, the industrial revolution had changed all of that, and now the south had a very powerful economy due to the profits made from the slave trade. This, in turn, created a powerful class of people who were in favor of the slave system, and it was difficult for politicians in the south to argue for the abolition of slavery because it would threaten their own economic interests. However, the industrial revolution had also changed the public's opinion on slavery, and it became less popular over time due to the moral objections of many religious people. Meanwhile, the abolitionist movement was growing in strength to the north, and it was beginning to argue that slavery was an outdated and immoral system. This created a strong divide between the pro-slavery south and the increasingly abolitionist north, and the war was fought primarily over the issue of slavery. In the end, the south lost, and the abolition of slavery became a reality in the United States
  • 00:45:00 Alessandro Barbero discusses the current American Civil War and why abolitionism is a important movement. He argues that, if the southern states are allowed to keep their slaves, the North will eventually lose power and democracy will be destroyed. He also points out that, even though white southerners may treat their slaves well, they are inferior intellectually and will eventually cause problems. This leads Barbero to conclude that slavery should be defended at all costs and that intellectuals in the south should stop talking negatively about it and start defending it.
  • 00:50:00 Alessandro Barbero discusses the American Civil War, which he believes was fought by a different race of people, who succeeded in convincing white, poor Americans that slavery and the promise of American freedom and equality were safe. For the owners of slaves, this meant that they were safe from the other nightmare that was spreading throughout the world at the middle of the 1800s, which is the struggle of class in Europe. There have been years now where workers, dissatisfied with their conditions, have gone on strike; there have been threats of revolution; and the specter of communism has been seen in Europe, among other places, in the year 1848, when Marx and Engels wrote the book "The Communist Manifesto." In the South, the problem doesn't exist; all white people are content and satisfied with the system. Four years before the outbreak of the Civil War, the governor of South Carolina, speaking in the U.S. Senate, described the situation in the South as follows: "There is no longer any question of the stability of the system. Progress is everywhere visible; order prevails; peace and prosperity reign. There is no need for soldiers to protect society. The desire for a change radical enough to alter the whole organization of society is not
  • 00:55:00 The video discusses the Civil War in America, with Alessandro Barbero discussing the south's desire to secede from the Union. In 1850, the south was discussing the possibility of adding slavery to California, but it was still years away from becoming a state. That year, a convention of southern states was held to discuss the issue. For the first time, southern officials started to talk about splitting from the Union. The compromise they came to was that the south would stay in the Union, but receive more power. This led to the creation of the Confederate States of America. In 1855, the Kansas-Nebraska Act was passed, which allowed for slavery to be spread into the newly acquired territory. This caused a wave of emigration north, with abolitionists from both the north and south traveling to Kansas to support either side. The fight over slavery in Kansas led to a series of tragedies, the most famous of which was the Kansas-Missouri War. In the end, the north won, and slavery was abolished in the entire United States. However, the south continued to fight, using Kansas as an example of what could happen if they seceded. This led to the second American Civil War (1861-1865).

In this video, historian Alessandro Barbero discusses the events leading up to and during the American Civil War. He focuses on the cases of John Brown, an abolitionist leader who was killed in a conflict with pro-slavery forces, and Scott Dred Scott, a black slave who unsuccessfully sued for his freedom in a federal court. The Supreme Court ruled in Scott's favor, declaring that he is not a citizen and has no right to appeal to federal authorities. This decision has far-reaching implications, as it establishes that each state is free to abolish slavery as it sees fit.

  • 01:00:00 The video discusses the abolition of slavery in the United States, focusing on the case of John Brown, an abolitionist leader who was killed in a conflict with pro-slavery forces. The video then moves on to discuss another case, that of Scott Dred Scott, a black slave who unsuccessfully sue for his freedom in a federal court. The Supreme Court rules in Scott's favor, declaring that he is not a citizen and has no right to appeal to federal authorities. This decision has far-reaching implications, as it establishes that each state is free to abolish slavery as it sees fit.
  • 01:05:00 Alessandro Barbero's video, "La guerra civile americana," covers the dramatic events of the American Civil War, which started in 1861. John Brown, a militant abolitionist, attempted to take over a military arsenal in Virginia in 1859, but was eventually captured and executed. This event created a legend, which persists to this day. In the 1860 election, the Republican Party, which was founded in response to Brown's campaign, won a majority of seats in the United States Congress.
  • 01:10:00 In this video, Alessandro Barbero discusses the American Civil War, which began in 1861. He notes that those who do not want slavery in the Kansas Territory will create a state without slaves and gives a Constitution banning black people from entering Kansas. Lincoln, who is white, is selected because it is hoped he will not make too much of a scare in the south, as he has never been an abolitionist and is aware that the problem will eventually have to be faced. In his inaugural speech, Lincoln declares that he does not intend to interfere with the institution of slavery in the states where it exists and that he has no inclination to do so. He goes on to say that any attempt to dissolve the Union of these states is a direct violation of the Constitution and that the Republicans, who won in November, are the rightful rulers of all of the south. In March 1861, six more states secede from the Union. By this point, Lincoln's position is clear: the Union is eternal, and no state may legally depart it. As such, he considers that the Constitution has not been broken. He continues to enforce federal laws in all the states, with the exception of the south, which has seceded outright. The idea of secession is the essence
  • 01:15:00 Alessandro Barbero, a physical description, discusses the Lincoln inauguration and how the southern states felt about being forced to return to the Union under his rule. He also touches on the southern Confederate opposition to the Union, and how Lincoln's efforts to recruit soldiers and retake forts led to his assassination. Barbero discusses the immense social progress made in the U.S. without war, and how the southern slaveowners reacted to Lincoln's efforts to abolish slavery.
