Abraham Lincoln is considered by many to be our greatest president. He is also one of the most controversial. From the time he was elected down to this day, people have debated various aspects of his personality and politics. Was he depressed? Why did he tell so many stories? Was he truly opposed to slavery? Did he free the slaves? Did the Union prevail because of his leadership or despite of it? In this course, we will take a close look at President Lincoln, assessing his political style and temperament, and focusing on the question of slavery. In the end, we will hope to uncover the man and not the myth.
