Our 16th president has been written about so much that it is hard to separate fact from legend. This often happens when an historical figure becomes larger than life and seems to portray super-human features that frequently make it difficult for normal mortals, like ourselves, to relate. In this course we will examine the well-known aspects of Lincoln's life but we will also look at the very human traits this man possessed. He was, on occasion, depressed and suicidal, was unfortunate enough to have to mourn the death of some of his children while managing the Civil War and his emotionally troubled wife, Mary Todd. We will better understand how Lincoln utilized his noted sense of humor to cope with the enormous burdens he faced during his life. Please join us as we examine the very human traits of our most revered president.
