2018 Winter Lecture Series – The Lincoln – Douglas Debates

Here’s Ranger Dan Vermilya giving a typical outstanding presentation in the Gettysburg National Military Park’s 2018 Winter Lecture Series. This presentation deals with the 1858 Lincoln-Douglas Debates.

The video’s description reads, “In a series of seven debates between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas in 1858, the state of slavery was at the epicenter of the Illinois Senate race that would catapult Lincoln onto the national scene and ultimately President of the United States.”
