About Tuesday Scholars:
Tuesday Scholars combines the best of online learning with live virtual discussion! All you need to do in advance is be eager to learn and discuss. Each week, you will log in and together, via Zoom, all of us will watch approximately one hour of this lecture series, then, via Zoom, OWL's Caroline Ugurlu will lead everyone in a discussion of what we just watched.
About the course:
Lincoln was the central figure in the nation's greatest crisis, the Civil War. His achievements in office make as good a case as any that he was the greatest president in U.S. history. What made Lincoln great? What ideas were at the core of his understanding of American politics? What gifts equipped Lincoln to lead? This course explores those questions with the help of an authority who has become one of the country's most distinguished Lincoln scholars and an award-winning author for his books about Lincoln.
Professor Allen C. Guelzo will lead you on "a great adventure," a tour of Lincoln's life, from his forebears' arrival in America through an evaluation of how his legacy lives on for us today. You will come to know Lincoln through the eyes of those who knew, lived with, and worked with him.
