I attended this lecture by Todd Brewster at the Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, PA on Wednesday, April 15, 2015. I wasn’t that impressed the first time I posted a video from one of his talks, and this talk confirmed my previous impression. He’s no Lincoln scholar, and he doesn’t understand as much of the Emancipation Proclamation or the six months of Lincoln’s life he studied as he thinks he understands. He would benefit greatly by reading Allen Guelzo’s terrific book, Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation: The End of Slavery in America. I was disappointed with the talk. It was a superficial account that made me believe purchasing his book would be a waste of money.
