Free Online Course, Missouri’s Civil War, Looks at a State Divided
Though many people visualize Virginia or Georgia when they think of famous Civil War battles, Dr. Jeremy Neely, history instructor at Missouri State University, wants to shed light on the significance of Missouri during the last war on American soil. His new Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), Missouri’s Civil War, begins Oct. 19. Neely will address military, political and social history, and focus on Missouri due to the number of engagements that took place within the state. Missouri is a particularly interesting study, noted Neely, because of the division in the state.
The course runs for eight weeks and participants can enroll at any time during that period. Course material will open one week at a time, but will not close until the class is completed. All course materials are completed online.
