Lincoln’s Antislavery Politics

Here’s Prof. James Oakes on Lincoln’s political actions against slavery.

The video’s description reads, “James Oakes talked about Abraham Lincoln’s relationship with abolitionist movements and antislavery politics. Mr. Oakes spoke about the abolitionist movements of the day and how they helped transform a politically cautious Lincoln into an emancipator.”

This is an excellent presentation.
