Civil Wars are so much fun – after the fact.  Try not to live through one.

American Civil War: Seven students did essays on Bruce Catton’s article “GRANT AND LEE: A STUDY IN CONTRASTS” this term. Last term, nine students. Before that, fifteen students. Dear Professor, I know teaching students to write  a basic essay is hard, but can’t you think of a different compare/contrast essay? Thank you.

War in the Kingdom of Israel

Isreal vs JudahFinally someone came to me – not from Comp I but from a History class. A Civil War that wasn’t a war!  A parting of ways, where 10 tribes seceded from a union of 12 without a shot fired!

 

Kingdoms of Israel and Judah, in context of other kingdoms in the Levant:

Isr-Juda-Levant

What’s a Kingdom without Kings?

Judah – Crown passed from father to son

Israel – Crown passed to whoever could grab it. Occasionally from father to son.

  • Shortest Kingship: 7 days.
  • Longest Kingship: 40 years.
