Abraham Lincoln’s Constitution

 

July 21 – 26, 2019

 Academic Director:
Dr. Allen C. Guelzo
Henry R. Luce Professor of Civil War Era, History
Gettysburg College (PA)
Location: Valley Forge, Pennsylvania

Abraham Lincoln, America’s 16th president, struggled to unite a country during the Civil War, and his fervent passion to keep the Union together came from one of this country’s founding documents, the Constitution. In one speech in 1858, Lincoln said, “Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.” Many issues that Lincoln faced in his time, such as habeus corpus, secession and treason, still confront the nation today. Consideration of current constitutional conflicts will be addressed and examined.

“Guelzo is one of our most accomplished Civil War historians, and one of the country’s foremost Lincoln scholars. He is the first two-time winner of the Lincoln Prize—in 2000 for Abraham Lincoln: Redeemer President and in 2005 for Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation: The End of Slavery in America.”

Mackubin Thomas Owens, The Weekly Standard

Program features include:

  • Changes in American society brought about through constitutional conflicts from 1800-1865
  • Civil War challenges facing the United States, including secession, habeus corpus, treason, the 14th and 15th Amendments, and reconstruction
  • Understanding how modern-day constitutional conflicts are rooted in the same issues Lincoln faced as president
  • Five days of scholarly lectures and pedagogical discussions
  • Network with teachers from across the country
