Western Culture Debate: "What if the South Had Won?"

On 17 November 2013 the class staged a formal public debate. Using their historical and western culture skills, the class engaged in counter-factual analysis to debate the impact of a Confederate victory on the subsequent development of western culture.

The Affirmative Team (arguing that a Confederate victory would have slowed the development of western culture, L to R): Bo Turney, Will Brantley, Atticus O'Brien, Will Lacey, Andrew Gass, Caleb Swiney, Baker Allen.

Western Culture Debate

The Affirmative team won the debate, but the balloting (submitted by judges consisting of HSC students, faculty, staff members, and a few members of the community) was close.

The Negative Team (arguing that a Confederate victory would not have slowed the development of western culture, L to R): Mitch Owens, Alex Trivette, Nathan Knox, Joe Bean, Chris Hawk, Christian Clifton. 

And also in the Fall of 2013....Liesl continued to be irredeemably adorable.
