Four Score Speaker Series: Dr. Lucas Morel

Tuesday, May 18, 7pm CST (Zoom webinar)

Join us for a conversation with Dr. Lucas Morel, author of Lincoln and the American Founding published by Southern Illinois University Press as part of its Concise Lincoln Library.  The publisher notes, “In this persuasive work of intellectual history, Lucas E. Morel argues that the most important influence on Abraham Lincoln’s political thought and practice was what he learned from the leading figures of and documents from the birth of the United States. In this systematic account of those principles, Morel compellingly demonstrates that to know Lincoln well is to understand thoroughly the founding of America.”
