Learn about the challenge and complexity Abraham Lincoln faced as he assessed the possibilities for a reconstructed Union before, during, and after the Civil War in this day-long Seminar on the topic. Primary documents will include those from Lincoln and others before the war, as they clarify their views on slavery and how it should be dealt with, as well as readings produced during the war, as Lincoln’s views on his legal and constitutional options changed as the war progressed.
