Study the most famous presidential debates in American history. Remarkable for what they reveal about Abraham Lincoln—and his constituency—these debates present Lincoln as an economic capitalist and slavery moderate and Stephen A. Douglas as a candidate committed to expanding slavery in U.S. territories and protecting the southern establishment. Discover the ideological divide that ripped America apart from 1860 to 1865 through the most prominent political voices of the last years of the antebellum period.
