featuring Rachel Gurvich, Clinical Assistant Professor of Law

“Ranging from finely honed legal argument to wry and sometimes savage humor, the writings collected in this volume are at once a literary testament of the greatest writer ever to occupy the White House and a documentary history of America in Abraham Lincoln’s time. They record Lincoln’s campaigns for public office; the evolution of his stand against slavery; his electrifying debates with Stephen Douglas; his conduct of the Civil War; and the great public utterances of his presidency, including the Emancipation Proclamation and the Gettysburg Address.”

Wednesdays, October 11 and 18
