Eight Weeks in Washington, 1861: Abraham Lincoln and the Hazards of Transition
As we celebrate 150 years since Lincoln first took the oath of office on March 4, 1861, a reappraisal of Lincoln's first eight weeks in office is in order. A close look at those weeks, our most hazardous transition, reveals a time when the fate of the nation's capital, certainly of the Lincoln Administration, and perhaps of the nation itself, seemed very much in doubt.
