Lincoln’s International Influence

Here’s Professor Paul Quigley, the James I. Robertson Jr. Professor of Civil War History at Virginia Tech and the Director of the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies talking about Abraham Lincoln’s international influence.

From the video’s description:  “Paul Quigley talked about how Abraham Lincoln’s image has been adapted internationally for different purposes since his death in 1865. Mr. Quigley described the malleability of Lincoln’s image for various causes, such as antislavery societies, fledgling republics, and nations attempting to unify after their own internal strife.”
