Public responses to Lincoln’s assassination have been well chronicled, but New York University Professor of History Martha Hodes is the first to delve into personal and private responses—of African Americans and whites, Yankees and Confederates, soldiers and civilians. In this talk, she investigates the reaction on a human scale to America’s first presidential assassination, when the future of the nation was at stake for everyone whether they grieved or rejoiced at the news.

Presented with Dartmouth College History Department
