Historians discussed how the Civil War and 19th century westward expansion were interrelated and together transformed the country. They described a power shift from white citizens in the West to the post-Civil War federal government, and how the construction of the railroads across the West connected communities and helped extend the government’s reach. They also talked about developments for freed slaves and Native Americans in the western territories. This program was part of a conference hosted by the Aspen Institute in Aspen, Colorado. close
