The Great Body of the Republic: Abraham Lincoln and the Great Plains by Kenneth Winkle

Dec 30 2012 - 4:00pm
About this event
Abraham Lincoln considered the Great Plains important for America’s future. As president, however, Lincoln subordinated the interest of the Great Plains and the people who lived there because of his efforts to win the Civil War. Professor Winkle investigates how Lincoln’s wartime policies changed the history of the Great Plains forever and left an indelible impression on the lives and culture of the people who live here today.
