The President’s Sword

Lecture no. 11 from the course: Mr. Lincoln: The Life of Abraham Lincoln

The President’s Sword

Taught by Professor Allen C. Guelzo | 34 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Lincoln used speeches and letters to defend his ideas, and his success was extraordinary. His gift as a communicator was matched by the gift for battlefield victory offered by Ulysses S. Grant. Lincoln feared he would be defeated for reelection, but a string of Union military victories rejuvenated his fortunes.
