That’s the title of a lecture the Witherspoon Institute is very proud to sponsor, this Tuesday, November 19, at 4:30 p.m. on the Princeton University campus (co-sponsored by the James Madison Program in American Ideals and Institutions). It’s the first in a new annual lecture series, the William E. and Carol G. Simon Lecture on Religion in American Public Life, and the first lecturer is Allen C. Guelzo, the distinguished Lincoln scholar and Civil War historian, and Henry R. Luce Professor of the Civil War Era and Professor of History at Gettysburg College. The occasion is, of course, the sesquicentennial of the Gettysburg Address. For more information see here . We hope First Things readers in the area on Tuesday can come hear Professor Guelzo.
