You will conduct an analysis of government actions and legal and political responses during the Civil War to the United States. The analysis will center on the precedents from the threat period (law, policy, or case law) and their application to modern homeland security. A focus on the lessons learned from the period to include issues related to civil liberties is expected.
The paper should provide a short description of the threat, the government responses, impacts to civil liberties from the response, and the lessons for modern homeland security. For threat periods with multiple policy responses and Supreme Court cases it is permissible to focus on one or two issues in depth.
