Connections: The Assassination of Lincoln

It has been 150 years since the assassination of Lincoln, and on this edition of Connections, we’ll explore the legacy of one of our great presidents. We’ll talk about the assassination – how it happened, how it was reported, and how things have changed. And we’ll talk about whether recent films and interpretations of Lincoln have been accurate with our guest, Joseph Fornieri, director of the Center for Statesmanship, Law, and Liberty atRIT.
