The age of Lincoln by Orville Vernon Burton ( Book )
10 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In a remarkable reappraisal of Lincoln, distinguished historian Burton shows how the Kentucky-born president's Southernness empowered him to conduct a civil war that redefined freedom as a personal right protected by the rule of law. In the violent decades that followed, the extent of that freedom would be contested by racism and unregulated capitalism, but not its central place in what defined the country"--From publisher description
In my Father's house are many mansions : family and community in Edgefield, South Carolina by Orville Vernon Burton ( Book )
9 editions published between 1985 and 1998 in English and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Burton traces the evolution of Edgefield County from the antebellum period through Reconstruction and beyond. From amassed information on every household in this large rural community, he tests the many generalizations about southern black and white families of this period and finds that they were strikingly similar. Wealth, rather than race or class, was the main factor that influenced family structure, and the matriarchal family was but a myth. This detailed treatment of the economics, patterns, and rhythms of rural life, including analyses of religion and religious themes in the agrarian community, will advance our understanding of rural history and race relations in the South

1863 : Lincoln's pivotal year by Harold Holzer ( )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Only hours into the new year of 1863, Abraham Lincoln performed perhaps his most famous action as president by signing the Emancipation Proclamation. Rather than remaining the highlight of the coming months, however, this monumental act marked only the beginning of the most pivotal year of Lincoln's presidency and the most revolutionary twelve months of the entire Civil War. In recognition of the sesquicentennial of this tumultuous time, prominent Civil War scholars explore the events and personalities that dominated 1863 in this enlightening volume, providing a unique historical perspec

Program #830 Title: "The Age of Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln dominated his age but he was also a product of it. The restless, young country into which he was born was a confusion of great passions and ambitions. Religious fervor and a belief in human perfectibility were being tested as the country pushed westward. The expansion of slavery into the west infused politics with a great moral challenge. Award-winning historian Vernon Burton describes an age that changed a nation."--Track sheet
