FALL 2016 Weber Historical Society Lecture Series:

In this talk, Harold Holzer explores Lincoln’s ongoing leadership role in the heated, ongoing battle over foreign immigration to America—an uncivil war unto itself even as a real Civil War broke out between North and South. Lincoln had much to say on the issue as a rising local politician, as a Congressman, as a politician, as president—and even during a temporary and largely unknown stint as editor of his own foreign-language newspaper! As always, Lincoln offers revealing insights into his complex day and age—and guidance for our own.
