Timothy Huebner, author of Liberty and Union, provides a reexamination of the Civil War era, exploring how the African American understanding of constitutional equality helped transform a war for the Union into a war for emancipation and equal rights. Tom Donnelly, senior fellow in constitutional studies at the National Constitution Center, moderates.

A book sale and signing of Liberty and Union: The Civil War Era and American Constitutionalism will follow the discussion.
