MILH541 - Civil War Strategy and Tactics

Course Details

Course Code: MILH541 Course ID: 2657 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Graduate

This course is a study of the American Civil War with emphasis on operational contributions of Union and Confederate military leadership. Students examine Civil War battles on two levels: the strategic doctrine as formed by the major commanders and tactical developments that affected the conduct of battle at a lower echelon of command. Special emphasis is on the interplay between these levels in order to gain a comprehensive view of strategy and tactics in both armies from 1861-1865.
