ID : 993   
« back to classes page
Abraham Lincoln was not only one of our greatest Presidents, but he was also one of the most important interpreters of the Constitution in our history.  During the Civil War - a time that stressed the Constitution almost to its breaking point - Lincoln carefully analyzed the Constitution.  He developed and articulated insightful - and controversial - positions on fundamental constitutional issues such as: the nature of our Union, the extent of presidential power and balancing civil liberties against national security.  Lincoln's interpretations defined the Constitution that we live under today.  This course will examine and evaluate Lincoln's interpretations.
