A workshop series for twenty Washington, D.C., area school teachers on Abraham Lincoln's exercise of presidential power during the Civil War.

This application will fund a teacher workshop entitled "Abraham Lincoln and Presidential Power", exploring how President Lincoln?s ideas and actions have shaped presidential power. The workshop will bring together twenty Washington, DC area teachers and noted scholars on Lincoln and the Civil War. The central issues to be examined in this workshop are: How did Lincoln?s ideas and actions shape presidential power? Did he shape it consciously or unconsciously? What aspects of presidential power are his lasting legacies? To understand Lincoln?s legacy and his role in shaping the Civil War and emancipation, teachers will explore the areas of civil liberties, civil rights, communication, and American ideals and values. Teachers will gain an understanding of how Lincoln?s ideas and action in these areas have greatly influenced the American presidency as we know it today.
