As the Shenandoah moves deeper into the Pacific Michael and Robert are delighted to welcome Hawai‘i Pacific University associate professor of History Justin Vance, who has just been named the 2015 Hawaii History Educator of the Year. Justin takes us through the suprisingly profound and long lasting consequences for Hawaii and other Pacific islands caused by the American Civil War. Hawaii started the Civil War as the world’s great centre of whaling support, an industry that the Shenandoah did it’s very best to destroy. But the Civil War was also Hawaii’s salvation, as the North’s insatiable appetite for sugar could no longer be slaked by the Southern plantations. Find out how ‘the voyage of the Shenandoah connects the Civil War to the world’, on this weeks episode of Shenandoah Down Under.
