Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Revisited
May 1, 2019
First Congregational Church of Manchester
Historians rank Abraham Lincoln’s majestic second inaugural address as one of the greatest political orations in American history. But at the time, the speech generated entirely partisan responses even as the Civil War headed toward Union victory. Preeminent Lincoln biographer Harold Holzer revisits the unforgettable day of March 4, 1865.
Hosted by the Manchester Community Library.
