Lincoln in 1864

Recorded during his Bicentennial in 2009, the National Archives has put up a 47 minute talk by Charles Bracelen Flood, author of 1864: Lincoln at the Gates of History. Flood was inspired by Barbara Tuchman’s the Guns of August to isolate a particular period in Lincoln’s life. He chose 1864 where he describes some of the decisions that proved Lincoln’s greatest. It’s an interesting talk and encourages you to read the book, unless you like Mary Lincoln, apparently he has no time for her.
