Additional notes about Lincoln’s Inaugural train ride. Including Whitman’s description of him. More Train stop speeches. A curse of Congress by Benjamin Wade, Lincoln’s true opinion on Seward’s New Mexico idea (more complex I must admit than my comments in the episode), and a little bit about the ‘Rain in Springfield.’ A long episode usually results in a lot of ‘left overs’ on the legal pad and in my memory. Some things are too lengthy to get in. Some I can’t find at that crucial recording time!
