August 19: International Arms Trade during the American Civil War, hosted by Roe Smith.
Military-sponsored mass production technologies came of age during the American Civil War. Thereafter, surplus firearms flooded global arms markets which fueled an escalating international arms race that played a significant role in paving the way to World War I. This talk will contextualize and deepen the “merchants of death” thesis that came into vogue after World War I. Presented by Merritt Roe Smith, Professor of the History of Technology at MIT and a summer Ocean Parker. Cost: $5.00.
