Abraham Lincoln in Crisis

Louis Masur – Rutgers University

In this time of crisis it is important to remember that we are neither the last nor the first to live through challenging circumstances. Are there lessons we can learn from from the past, and in particular, from the man who preserved the Union, Abraham Lincoln? How did this man lead the nation through a four year crisis and abolish slavery? Join Professor Louis Masur in discussing the incredible strengths of Lincoln and what we can learn from his tenure in facing crises in the modern world.
