American History with George H. Smith, Part Three

Libertarianism.org is proud to present George H. Smith’s lecture series on American history, given at Dartmouth College in 1983 at one of the first Cato Summer Seminars. Smith provides an intellectual history of the founding and development of the United States from the Declaration of Independence to the Progressive Era.

In the third and final part of this series, Smith lectures on the period of American history from the beginning of the Civil War to the beginning of what’s commonly known as the ‘Progressive Era’ in the early 1900s.

George H. Smith was formerly Senior Research Fellow for the Institute for Humane Studies and Executive Editor of Knowledge Products. Smith’s fourth book, The System of Liberty, is forthcoming from Cambridge University Press.
