Lincoln and Antebellum Views on Death

Here’s Professor Brian Dirck of Anderson University at the 2019 Lincoln Forum in Gettysburg, PA discussing Lincoln’s views on death during the Civil War.

The video’s description reads, “Author Brian Dirck examined accounts written by close associates of Abraham Lincoln to explain the president’s view of death before the Civil War. Mr. Dirck argued that Lincoln balanced his emotions with reason, allowing him to cope with fatalities on the battlefield. The Lincoln Forum symposium hosted this event.”
