HIS 108 - Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and Slavery (4 Cr.)

One was a Midwestern self-made man and lawyer turned anti-slavery politician.  The other was a Maryland-born enslaved person turned fugitive and anti-slavery activist. Individually-and eventually, in association-Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass had a profound influence on the Civil War-era crisis over slavery.  They also wrote some of the most beautiful and powerful prose in American history.  This introductory class, which will serve as a point of entry into the practice and tools of History, examines in depth the writings of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass.  Themes to be discussed include:  the meaning of liberty; the role of political parties in American democracy; racial ideology; the influence of religion on American thought; and the impact of the Civil War. Ths course is primarily intended for first or second year students.   Spring semester. Hale.
