New-York Historical Society Hosts Reception to Celebrate

the Publication of Harold Holzer $B!G (Bs

Lincoln President-Elect: Abraham Lincoln and the Great Secession Winter 1860 – 1861
November 10, 2008

 

 
 

New York – The New-York Historical Society will host a reception on Monday, November 10 at 6:30 PM. to celebrate the publication of Lincoln President-Elect: Abraham Lincoln and the Great Secession Winter 1860 – 1861 by Harold Holzer, one of the most eminent Lincoln scholars, winner of a Lincoln Prize for his Lincoln at Cooper Union and Chief Historian for the Society $B!G (Bs 2009 Lincoln and New York exhibition.

The book by Harold Holzer examines the four months between Lincoln $B!G (Bs election and inauguration, when the president-elect made the most important decision of his coming presidency—there would be no compromise on slavery or secession of the slaveholding states even at the cost of an inevitable Civil War. Lincoln President-Elect is the first book to concentrate on Abraham Lincoln $B!G (Bs public stance during these months and the momentous consequences when he first demonstrated his determination and leadership, rejecting compromises urged on him that might have preserved the Union for a little while longer but enshrined slavery for generations.

Harold Holzer is one of the country $B!G (Bs leading authorities on Abraham Lincoln and the political culture of the Civil War era.  A prolific writer and lecturer, and frequent guest on television, he serves as co-chairman of the United States Lincoln Bicentennial Commission, appointed by President Clinton in September 2000, and elected co-chairman in 2001.  Holzer has authored, co-authored, and edited 31 books: The Lincoln Image (1984); Changing the Lincoln Image (1985); and The Confederate Image, (1987) – all with Mark E. Neely, Jr. and Gabor S. Boritt; The Lincoln Family Album (1990); and Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory: The Civil War in Art (1993), among others. His book Lincoln At Cooper Union: The Speech That Made Abraham Lincoln President (2004), won a 2005 Lincoln Prize, the most prestigious award in the field.
