Lincoln’s Triumph

Lecture no. 10 from the course: Mr. Lincoln: The Life of Abraham Lincoln

Lincoln’s Triumph

Taught by Professor Allen C. Guelzo | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

The Emancipation Proclamation cost Lincoln and his party dearly in the 1862 elections. He also sustained deep personal wounds in the death of his son and political tribulations from a divided cabinet, radical members of his own party, and the Democratic Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Lincoln drew on his confidence in the will of God and his shrewd powers of analyzing people and situations.

Professor Guelzo tells the story of Lincoln in a very captivating way. He can take the core concepts of the civil war and make them interesting to anyone. I am glad I took the time to follow this course.
