Civil War Era and the Constitution

Here’s Professor Tim Huebner of Rhodes College speaking at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, PA on Lincoln, slavery, emancipation, and the Constitution.

The video’s description reads, “Timothy Huebner talked about the Civil War Era and the Constitution, focusing on the history of slavery during the antebellum period and its eventual abolition with the 13th Amendment, ratified in 1865. Mr. Huebner discussed the evolution of Abraham Lincoln’s thinking on slavery and the Constitution. He also talked about how African Americans worked to achieve their own freedom and rights during the period.”
