Just letting you know I saw the Webinar from the downloading it! It was a great 10 minutes of Lincoln.
I agree with emma! I liked the webinar, we should do it more often!!As for the content of the webinar, I am am starting to come to the conclusion that Lincoln did a lot more than the textbooks suggest. Every little thing he did as president had a greater meaning and purpose. For example, the emancipation wasn't just to emancipate slaves, it was to decrease southern morale and increase the union's position militarily. In addition another interesting example you mentioned was how he limited civil liberties to not only control his country during a crisis but to expand executive power at the same time.
