“Lincoln’s Skill as a Political Tactician” Lincoln’s reputation as a war time executive commander has been so marked that we often forget, if not ignore, other non-military aspects of his presidency. In fact, he was one of the most consummate political operatives in US history.

Our Presenter: Noted for his scholarly approach to a subject matter, Prof. Jonathan Lurie is a sought after and frequent speaker, presenting a wide variety of historical subjects. Prof. Lurie has been a speaker at the NJCWRT for over 12 years, focusing on a different facet of Abraham Lincoln every year! At Rutgers University, Prof. Lurie specialized in American Legal History, Constitutional history, law and literature, and American political history.
