    1. I thought I knew about Abraham Lincoln After all, I was schooled in this country where Lincoln was extolled for freeing the slaves and saving the Union I had read some fairly long, detailed books covering his life and aspects of his personality So I was shocked at how totally ignorant I was about many of his beliefs, especially those pertaining to slavery and the rights of the enslaved Today, Lincoln would be considered by most to be a racist He did not believe in true equality, and he opposed t [...]


    2. This is an excellent set of lectures analyzing who Lincoln was they his own writings It brings a lot of clarity to this time in American history, how it all unfolded, and where Lincoln stood in the middle of it After reading, it s my belief so than ever before that Lincoln as well as civil war era American History is grossly misunderstood by both Lincoln s advocates and critics I would challenge anyone compelled to hold a strong opinion regarding this topic to first read these lectures at a min [...]


    3. This all sounds a little confusing, especially after reading A House Reunited How America Survived the Civil War by Jay Winik from which I personally got quite a different image of Abraham Lincoln But then again, if we can t get a bearing on politicians today how can we Still a very interesting lecture which I recommend to anyone with the slightest interest in this period.


    4. This recorded course from the spectacular Great Courses series serves as both a master class in the art of rhetoric, and a deep dive into the evolving philosophies of Abraham Lincoln through his remarkable career.Perhaps it s because my interest was about the latter than the former, but I will admit that I didn t really get seriously into this course until about halfway through, when we got to Lincoln s presidency, the Civil War, and his most famous speeches The Lincoln Douglas debates during h [...]


    5. I only had Part I, the first six cassettes, and I can t get the others at any library in the Rocky Mt region However, I have asked my daughter to find the tapes for me for Christmas, so I hope to be able to listen to the last six tapes, and relisten to the first ones again as well.The lectures are very interesting For instance, I had always assumed that Lincoln was an abolitionist Truth is that, although he didn t like slavery, he believed in colonization i.e he wanted the slaves sent back to Af [...]


    6. Abraham Lincoln was a phenomenal man, so Zarefsky had a winning topic to begin with His lectures were well done, good listening and very informative Good insight into Lincoln as a complex thinker who was working hard to preserve the union, trying to find some middle ground that would preserve the union while moving toward the eventual elimination of slavery Shows how his thinking matured and evolved over time That he never lived to see the fruit of his work is one of the great American tragedies [...]


    7. Fascinating look at Lincoln s speeches from the perspective of the art of rhetoric The teacher of this course examines Lincoln s great gift for stories and metaphor, and his skill in creating an argument He was a master at saying things in a way that didn t offend too many people, and yet got his point across Also we followed Lincoln s own evolution relative to limiting, then eliminating slavery and what was to happen to the slaves after they were freed.


    8. One of my favorite teaching company courses so far A balanced, at times critical, but ultimately flattering, look at Lincoln s rhetoric Includes terse, interesting, and in no way lacking, summations of the state of affairs surrounding each analyzed speech.


    9. These lectures annotate Lincoln s debates and speeches He is interesting to listen to and gave me I feel for the Lincoln that is my hero.
