Sidney Blumenthal, author of Wrestling With His Angel, brings Lincoln from the wilderness to the peak of his career as he takes control of the nation’s most profound spiritual crisis — slavery — and enters the battle for the nation’s soul. Michael Gerhardt, National Constitution Center scholar-in-residence, moderates.

A book sale and signing of Wrestling With His Angel: The Political Life of Abraham Lincoln Vol. II, 1849-1856 with Sidney Blumenthal will follow the program.
