BeschreibungAbraham Lincoln has long been revered by blacks and whites alike as the "Great Emancipator." What personal beliefs did Lincoln hold about the inherent differences or similarities between blacks and whites? How did his vision for race relations change as a result of the Civil War? This volume attempts to answer these questions.
PortraitAllen C. Guelzo opens the volume with a thought-provoking foreword. Brian R. Dirck is Assistant Professor of History and Political Science at Anderson University and is the author of two other books about Lincoln.
