L315 Fall 2019 Team of Rivals: Lincoln’s Cabinet
Thursdays, 9:40–11:05, Oct. 24–Oct. 31
Two sessions
Instructor: Jim Dunphy

In 1861, Abraham Lincoln was a little-known prairie lawyer who had served one unsuccessful term as a US Congressman. Having defeated much more-experienced statesmen for the Republican presidential nomination, he now faced the most perilous times in the history of the republic. To meet this crisis, unlike other Presidents, he turned to many of the men he defeated and created a team of his rivals that would guide the country through the fiery years of his term. In this class, we will look at these eminent men and the ways Lincoln used their talents and abilities to save the republic.
Jim Dunphy has taught more than 30 classes at OLLI on topics such as history, music, baseball, and movies. Recently, he taught a class on the Lincoln assassination and later led a field trip to the most important assassination sites.
