The Mind of Abraham Lincoln: An Immersive Afternoon – clip

Louis Masur / Rutgers University

His story invites us to marvel at how this poor, self-educated, frontier lawyer transformed himself into a political leader who defended democracy, preserved the nation, and abolished slavery. To best understand Lincoln, we must discuss his remarkable writing and speeches. Professor Louis Masur will provide detailed biographical information and context, and some of the time in this class will be devoted to discussion and analysis. Attendees will receive a packet of writings which they may choose to read before class. These readings include some of Lincoln’s most important speeches and writings: debates with Stephen Douglas, the First and Second Inaugural, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Gettysburg Address – as well as some less known but important works.
