Abraham Lincoln is considered our greatest president — and one of the most controversial. People have debated various aspects of his personality and politics. Was he depressed? Was he truly opposed to slavery? Did the Union prevail because of his leadership, or despite him? This episode, led by noted Lincoln scholar Louis Masur, aims to uncover the man and not the myth.

Louis Masur is a Distinguished Professor of American Studies and History at Rutgers University. He received outstanding teaching awards from Rutgers, Trinity College, and the City College of New York, and won the Clive Prize for Excellence in Teaching from Harvard University.
