One-Day Seminar: Lincoln’s House Divided Speech hosted by KEDC Lexington Middle Grades (Held Online)
May 8 @ 9:55 am - 11:00 am
Lincoln’s House Divided Speech was intended to stop Stephen Douglas’s political rise, especially his growing appeal among Republicans. More Importantly, its purpose was to help return “the public mind” to the Founders’ belief that slavery was fundamentally unjust and in the course of ‘ultimate extinction’.
This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance ( found here) and come ready with questions. All attendees will receive a Letter of Attendance at the end of the seminar.
