Lincoln’s Gamble meticulously focuses in on the six-month period leading up to the Emancipation Proclamation - a moment that proved pivotal not only to Lincoln’s life but also to the fabric of American national identity. In this compelling narrative, Todd Brewster focuses on these critical six months to ask: was it through will or by accident, intention or coincidence, personal achievement or historical determinism that Lincoln freed the slaves? Lincoln’s Gamble portrays the president as an imperfect man with an unshakable determination to save a country he believed in, even as the course of the Civil War remained unknown. Todd Brewster has served as Don E. Ackerman Director of Oral History at the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, and is a longtime journalist who has worked as an editor for Time and Life and as a senior producer for ABC News. See library’s registration link for additional details on the speaker. Q&A and book signing will follow the talk. No charge. Co-sponsored by Wilton Historical Society and Wilton Library. Registration highly recommended. Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Elm Street Books, New Canaan.
