Abraham Lincoln: In His Own Words [Audio Lectures]


"Lincoln is a much more complex figure--as a man, as a thinker, as a politician--than Americans conventionally believe. . . we will explore some of the dimensions of that complexity."
(c)Professor David Zarefsky

The speeches of Abraham Lincoln are a precious inheritance for all Americans, and indeed for all the world. As he led our nation through the gravest crisis it has ever faced, Lincoln emerged as our master of public eloquence without rival or equal. The example he set of statesmanship, courage, prudence, and magnanimity shines like a beacon down the years, to be looked to wherever the American experiment in ordered liberty and self-government is honored.
Taught by: Professor David Zarefsky--Northwestern University
