Abraham Lincoln and Reconstruction

This is Professor Louis P. Masur of Rutgers University, New Brunswick Campus. His presentation is based on his book, Lincoln’s Last Speech: Wartime Reconstruction and the Crisis of Reunion. This was part of the Abraham Lincoln Institute/Ford’s Theatre Symposium held at Ford’s Theatre on March 19, 2016.

The video’s description says, ” ‘Lincoln and the Problem of Reconstruction’ was part of the Abraham Lincoln Institute’s 19th annual symposium on ‘The Latest in Lincoln Scholarship.’ Co-sponsored by the Ford’s Theatre Society and the Illinois State Society of Washington, D.C., it was held at Ford’s Theatre.”

This is another outstanding presentation by a terrific historian who shows us how it’s done.
