Wills, G.: Lincoln at Gettysburg

Description

I would like to read Wills' book slowly and carefully with students. I plan to offer some other materials about the culture of the mid-19th-century U.S. , perhaps some of the Ken Burns documentary on the Civil War, letters and other speeches by Lincoln . I would like students who are interested in American history: politics, culture, literature. This seminar is part of the Food for Thought Seminar Series and part of the On the Same Page initiative: http://onthesamepage.berkeley.edu. Food for Thought dining arrangements will be discussed in class.
