Show Notes

How did Lincoln keep the slave-holding border states in the union while also advancing the cause of emancipation? Join me as I interview  Louis Masur, a distinguished professor of American Studies and History at Rutgers University and author of Lincoln’s Hundred Days: The Emancipation Proclamation and the War for the Union , on the tightrope act Lincoln walked to save the union and end American slavery once and for all.
