“A Blundering Generation” Lecture Series with Gary Hylander: Lincoln, Lincoln, Lincoln! (YP)

December 1, 2018 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

During the election of 1860, the Democratic Party split into warring factions. Lincoln maintained that, if elected president, he had no intention of abolishing the “peculiar institution.” Rather, the Republican Party contended that as long as slavery was not allowed to expand beyond the boundaries of the fifteen slave states, slavery would eventually “wither on the vine.” However, shortly after his election, seven slave states led by South Carolina seceded from the Union and created the Confederate States of America.
