With Malice Towards None: Abraham Lincoln in Words and Pictures @ Lewes Public Library @ Lewes Public Library

This illustrated lecture takes us through Lincoln’s early life and character, including his remarkable physical strength, love of books (despite his lack of formal education), aversions to hunting, gambling, and drinking alcohol (against the status quo of the day), sense of compassion toward native Americans, and his almost visceral disgust about slavery, even though he grew up and lived in a very racist society and culture. The presentation also gives examples of some of Lincoln’s most magnetic words and how he used his eloquent speaking manner to transform our country forever.
