Leftovers from ‘The Lincoln Train’ Episode – Lincoln’s Letter to Seward, Springfield’s Rain, More About Republicans, Secessionists and Compromises

posted in: Premium Podcast | 0

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!
