Dr. Michael Burlingame - Historians Speak

Dr. Michael Burlingame. one of the most respected Lincoln scholars in American, discusses his life spent studying Abraham Lincoln. As a psychohistorian, his "The Inner World of Abraham Lincoln" (1994) startled this subfield of Lincoln studies. Extensive work in Lincoln documents, many previously unpublished, enormously expanded the published sources for studying Lincoln's behind-the-scenes personal life and wartime work. His discovery in 1994 and publication in 2000 of key passages about Mary Lincoln's stealing, censored from the Browning diary (1925), made national news.
