Characters

Synopsis
Lincoln sees the Union as originating in 1776, with a commitment to rights and reason, and a rejection of arbitrary power; thus, the Union precedes and predates the Constitution. Others -- including leaders of the Confederacy -- see the Union and the Constitution as a voluntary association of states, for the convenience of the states, maintaining their independence and taking precedence over Union and Constitution alike.

Synopsis
Having declared independence on the grounds the British government was excessive, Americans experiment with a weak federal government, but soon recognize that a stronger central power is needed. The new Constitution leaves the upper limits of power vague. Washington, Adams, and Hamilton all insist that the federal power is supreme, but Jefferson and others, while agreeing to the new government, claim that its power is actually sharply limited.

Genre

Characters
Nicolas Denys; English colonists; slaves; Eli Whitney; cotton planters; Andrew Jackson; Abraham Lincoln; visitor to Washington
Synopsis
North America offers abundant cheap resources, but expensive scarce labor. Schemes to resolve this include slavery, which especially develops as a feature of the south, with its mild winters and long growing seasons. Southern cotton growers push ever westward, adding new states to the Union. But free-labor northerners do the same, loath to fall behind the south in Congressional representation. These movements develop into a race and a conflict.

Synopsis
Even slave owners like Jefferson and Madison warned that slavery would choke the nation. Lincoln opines that the Founders elected to end slavery gradually, and took effective steps to do so. Even so, Lincoln carried many contemporary white prejudices concerning black people.

Synopsis
Most Americans reject both secession and abolition, but tension rises to the point of war, partly sparked by the westward expansion and the Dred Scott decision. Having tried unsuccessfully to avoid war, Lincoln struggles with how best to wage it. He issues a partial Emancipation proclamation as a war measure, transforming the nature of the conflict.

Synopsis
Despite the widespread religiosity of the day, Lincoln for most of his life declined any religious life. As the war went on he began to speak more in religious terms -- perhaps because of personal change, perhaps because it was expected. Churches disagreed fiercely on slavery, but faith became a major support for the slaves themselves.

Characters

Synopsis
For whites, a new birth of freedom means the triumph of free labor, the restoration of the Union, white supremacy, and a white-on-white reconciliation that ignores the reality of slavery driving the Civil War. For African Americans, although freed from slavery, the new birth would wait a hundred years and only come through sustained mass action against violent reaction. Despite the many failures of its application, the insistence that all men are created equal proved powerful enough to work its way.

Characters

Synopsis
Lincoln built these final remarks on precedent, and others since then have built upon Lincoln's words in turn. They reflect the Civil War's resolution of tensions between the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. They imply that the United States is one nation of people, rather than a collection of states, and that Washington, rather than the state capitals, "is the people's foremost defender of freedom and liberty."
