Patricide in the House Divided: A Psychological Interpretation of Lincoln and His Age

it was amazing 5.0  ·  Rating Details ·  1 Rating  ·  0 Reviews
George B. Forgie argues that the crisis of the Union was decisively structured by one obvious, overbearing fact: the dominant figures in American public life in the 1850s were born in the early Republic. They were raised to think of its founders as immortal fathers whom they must imitate, themselves as brothers, and the Union as an inherited house to be preserved.
