Course Description

Everyone wants to define the man who signed his name "A. Lincoln." Abraham Lincoln is the most iconic figure in American history. He exerts a unique hold on our historical imagination as an embodiment of core American ideals and myths—the self-made man, the frontier hero, the liberator of the slaves. Thousands of works have been written about Lincoln, and almost any Lincoln you want can be found somewhere in the literature. Lincoln has been portrayed as a shrewd political operator driven by ambition, a moralist for whom emancipation was the logical conclusion of a lifetime hatred of slavery, and a racist who actually defended and tried to protect slavery. Politicians from conservatives to communists, civil rights activists to segregations, have claimed him as their own. Will the real Abraham Lincoln please identify himself? WE will try.  Lecture (plus questions)Listening to Music or Other AudioViewing Videos
