The Dream of Lincoln

Lecture no. 12 from the course: Mr. Lincoln: The Life of Abraham Lincoln

The Dream of Lincoln

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

Lincoln's Second Inaugural offered a quasi theology of the war, rebuking radicals of his own party who wanted a vengeful reconstruction of the South. But Lincoln was already beginning to attach conditions to reconstruction himself, beginning with recognition of slave emancipation and voting rights for freed slaves. These plans were tragically cut short by his murder on the night of April 14, 1865.

This is perhaps the greatest course I have ever seen. Flawless. I have never felt more proud to be an American.
