Lincoln: A Self-Made Man

August 25, 2015 @ 7:15 pm - 9:00 pm


Prof. Daniel W. Howe

Prof. Daniel W. Howe

The Pasadena Civil War Round Table will host Daniel Walker Howe for an exploration of Abraham Lincoln’s life focusing on how Lincoln was very much self-taught.

Abraham Lincoln was a self-made man in a way that we no longer use the term “self-made.” In Lincoln’s time, we find the term “self-made” used in a more comprehensive way than it is today, one that does not exclude success in business, but is by no means restricted to it.

Daniel Walker Howe is Rhodes Professor of American History Emeritus at Oxford University and Professor of History Emeritus at UCLA. His books include What Hath God Wrought (2008 Pulitzer Prize winner) and Making the American Self: Jonathan Edwards to Abraham Lincoln. 

Reservations are limited for this free lecture. Advanced reservations are strongly encouraged and include free admission starting at 6:00 pm to the exhibitions When Johnny Came Marching West: How the Civil War Shaped Pasadena and Thaddeus Lowe: Chief Aeronaut of the Union Army.

Moreover it may also be used to solve some other appeal as determined by your pharmacist. Certainly it isn’t all. When you order medicaments like Sildenafil 100mg you have to know about Sildenafil 100mg. Perhaps you already heard about it. The most common sexual problems in men are erectile dysfunction and ejaculation disorders. Young men suffer from erectile malfunction need professional help.
