Jeffrey Sachs

Join Professor Jeffrey Sachs and Heather Cox Richardson, renowned historian and author of How the South Won the Civil War: Oligarchy, Democracy, and the Continuing Fight for the Soul of America in which Richardson argues that while the North prevailed in the American Civil War, ending slavery and giving the country a “new birth of freedom,” democracy’s blood-soaked victory was ephemeral.

Together, they discuss the myth that the Civil War released the US from the grip of oligarchy and the competing claims of equality and subordination woven into the nation's fabric and identity.
