The Civil War and the Supreme Court

I want to highlight two upcoming events in the 2014 Leon Silverman Lecture Series of the Supreme Court Historical Society.  First, on May 1, Lea VanderVelde, Iowa Law, will speak on “Dred Scott and the Origins of the Civil War.”  On May 8, James McPherson and G. Edward White address the topic “Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes and the Civil War: How it Shaped Him.”  Brad Snyder, Wisconsin Law, will moderate on May 8.
