Abraham Lincoln and Edwin Stanton

Here’s Walter Stahr talking at the 2017 Lincoln Forum about Abraham Lincoln’s relationship with his Secretary of War, Edwin M. Stanton. This is a very good presentation.

The video’s description reads, “Author Walter Stahr talked about the relationship between Abraham Lincoln and his Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, starting from when they first met as attorneys before the Civil War through Lincoln’s assassination in 1865. This discussion was part of the annual Lincoln Forum symposium in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.”
