So I’m obsessed with this Civil War lecture series, as I’ve undoubtedly mentioned before. I’ve listened to it all the way through at twice, and I’m on to my third go. Seriously, they’re incredible. I learn something new every time.
I was listening, as usual, yesterday, this time to a lecture on Lincoln and the end of the war, and I was struck by how similar Obama is to Lincoln- in temperament and in approach. So I wrote a post over at the USSC about Obama and Lincoln, and how Blight’s lecture series fit oh-so-nicely with what happened yesterday. Check it out, if you feel so inclined and have a bit of time.
