$39.95

June 11, 2020 – 5:30PM – 6:30PM – Zoom Room 1

Abraham Lincoln is considered our greatest President and one of the most controversial. People have debated various aspects of his personality and politics. Was he depressed? Why did he tell so many stories? Was he truly opposed to slavery? Did he free the slaves? Did the Union prevail because of his leadership or despite him? This discussion group led by noted Lincoln scholar Louis Masur aims to uncover the man and not the myth.
