But unfortunately a narrow and fanatical spirit seems to have taken possession of
those who managed this latest Abraham Lincoln centennial. This spirit found very
obnoxious expression by the orator of the day at the unveiling of the Lincoln
statue, to which I have just alluded. He was no less a personage than the
principal of the Law School of the University of Uganda. He seized the
opportunity to speak . in a censorious, not to say contemptuous tone, of 4 THE

Lincoln. Myth. Some Abraham Lincoln followers believe that he has approached
sainthood. According to David Donald, the "Lincoln cult" has become "almost an
American religion."1 Another Lincoln authority, Roy P. Basler, thinks that as time
passes, Lincoln "becomes more and more a national mythos. The certainty with
which this mythos will continue to live depends upon how much Lincoln is able to
stand reinterpreta- tion." Although this prediction was made fifty years ago, the ...

2 The Lincoln Myths-Exposed In Lincoln, the South, anci Slavery, historian
Robert W. Johann- sen wrote that anyone who embarked on a study of Abraham
Lincoln “must first come to terms with the Lincoln myth. The effort to penetrate the
crust of legend that surrounds Lincoln . . . is both a formidable and intimidating
task.”1 Indeed it is. One reason for this difficulty is that, as in all wars, the victors
write the history. The War between the States is no exception; the victorious

And especially this is true of Professor Boritt's remarks on the Whig tradition in
American social and economic theory.1 Beginning with these I may hope to
situate myself in relation to both the best of modern Lincoln scholarship and the
relentless gravity of the Lincoln myth, contribute to the larger conversation of this
conference, and still stand aside from its drift in the rigor of my criticism of the
sixteenth president of the United States. For the past three years the mere rumor

But, if you are to understand Marx and Engels' comments on the war, you have to
understand that Lincoln's reputation today bears the same relation to his
reputation among his contemporaries that a photo bears to the negative from

Abraham Lincoln: The Lincoln Myth That Lincoln had some good qualities is, of
course, undoubtedly true, as is likewise the fact that he has to his credit many
kindly, generous and magnanimous acts. But that he was a paragon of all the
public virtues, and that his history is unblemished by acts severely to be
reprobated, is, while widely claimed for him, of course, not true. In the light of his

god is as absurd as ...
