American Civil War hits streets of London





Fresh research revealing the critical role Britain played in the American Civil War has spawned a series of walking tours, taking in historic sites around the UK capital connected to the famous nineteenth-century conflict.

The tours, which start on Friday 8 October 2010, are based on the PhD findings of Tom Sebrell, a part-time history lecturer at Queen Mary, University of London.

He spent four years researching American Civil War propaganda movements that thrived in Britain while the conflict raged between Southern slave states (the Confederacy) fighting for independence from the United States (Unionists) on the other side of the Atlantic between 1861 and 1865.
