This series allows participants to examine and appreciate anew the rhetoric, political skill, and moral transformation of our sixteenth president Abraham Lincoln 150 years after his passing. We will examine this through nine of the former president’s speeches, the words of those who knew him, and a selection of letters, diary entries, and historical artifacts specifically chosen to deliver the most immersive experience possible using the latest technologies.
Audience participation is both welcome and encouraged. Please feel free to bring questions for open discussion.
