A CIVIL WAR COURSE.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The history department of the University is indeed rich in the number and variety of its courses. In the list we find such titles as: "The Foreign Policy of France Since 1815" and "The Constitutional History of England to the 16th Century." This large number of courses on so many different countries and epochs serves to render all the more striking the absence of an adequate course on the Civil War. The only course on this period is a reading one with very strict admission requirements. There is without doubt a real demand for a course which treats the Civil War in a manner similar to Professor Channing's excellent course on the Revolution.
