New Issue of History Now: Abraham Lincoln In His Time And Ours
The Gilder Lehrman Institute is pleased to present the eighteenth issue of History Now, a quarterly online journal for history teachers and students, available at www.historynow.org.
Issue 18, December, 2008: Abraham Lincoln in His Time and Ours
As we look forward to the bicentennial of President Lincolnís birthday in 2009, History Now (www.historynow.org) is fortunate to have four leading Lincoln scholars contribute their thoughts on the man who preserved the Union and took the first critical steps toward ending slavery in the United States. Taken together, these essays offer us a new lens through which to view the man, his political philosophy, his deeds, and his legacy.
In addition, this issue provides a wealth of primary and secondary sources in books and on the Web, useful suggestions on how to best use Lincoln primary sources in the classroom, and lesson plans at all grade levels from master teachers from across the country. Make sure to look at our interactive feature, which features video clips of these Lincoln scholars as they address the Lincoln Symposium held in November 2008 at Columbia University.
