Hear Amanda Foreman’s lecture September 27th as she delves into the important role that Britain played during the American Civil War, the topic of her book, A World on Fire.
One hundred fifty years ago this September, the British cabinet considered intervention in the American Civil War. Economically dependent on Southern cotton and impressed by Confederate military success, but revolted by Southern slavery, Britain’s leaders and people were torn in their loyalties. The course that Britain followed might well determine the outcome of the war in America.
As a resident of London and New York, Foreman has used her resources and knowledge to write this history of British-American relations that has become a bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic. A Visiting Research Fellow at the University of London, Foreman has become a world-wide presence as both a historian and writer and has gained recognition for her book Georgiana: Duchess of Devonshire.
