The Lincoln Lectures — The Great Comeback: How Lincoln Beat The Odds

In The Great Comeback, Gary Ecelbarger describes the journey of Abraham Lincoln from the last weeks of 1858 until the end of May in 1860, on the road to his unlikely Republican Presidential nomination.To see the latest expert lecture, book signing or rare film screening, check our calendar at http://www.archives.gov/calendar/.
