This course offers a detailed and intimate look at Abraham Lincoln and Ulysses S. Grant whose partnership won the Civil War and set the terms for Reconstruction. Acclaimed historian Louis Masur will introduce students to the backgrounds of each figure, narrate their early struggles to succeed, and detail their efforts in peace and war to preserve the nation. Lincoln was a president who served as commander in chief and Grant was a general who became president. One witness to their first meeting in 1864 recalled “the two men had many traits in common, and there were numerous points of resemblance in their remarkable careers.” By exploring their similarities—and their differences— we will come to a deeper appreciation of them as individuals and leaders who worked tirelessly on the nation’s behalf.
