Abraham Lincoln Sesquicentennial

Lincoln First Inaugural PhotoJust having marked the sesquicentennial of Abraham Lincoln’s First Inaugural Address on March 4th and having recently celebrated the bicentennial of his birth, much consideration has been given to the life and legacy of Abraham Lincoln. For those interested in learning more or in integrating some Lincoln materials into your rhetoric and public address courses, check out VOD’s unit on Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and its partner unit on Edward Everett’s Gettysburg Address.

We’d also encourage interested scholars to develop a unit on either of Lincoln’s inaugural addresses.
