"Lincoln on Liberty: Friend or Foe?"

By Matt Hawes

I don’t think that question is too hard to answer, and it is also the name of one of our C4L-sponsored events at CPAC 2010 – taking place Feb. 18-20 in Washington, D.C. – that I am really looking forward to.

Featuring Dr. Thomas DiLorenzo, our Thursday, February 18 “Lincoln on Liberty: Friend or Foe?” event will directly confront the myths surrounding one of the establishment’s favorites.

Here’s our promotional information for the lecture:

In modern times, President Abraham Lincoln is viewed as a secular saint, a figure of legend who receives almost universal reverence.

But does a close examination of the historical record support conventional wisdom? Or do the facts paint a different picture of our sixteenth president?

Was Lincoln the Great Emancipator? Or was he a dictator in all but name who destroyed the Founders’ vision of our Republic?

Author and Loyola College economics professor Thomas DiLorenzo explores the Lincoln legacy in this FREE one hour lecture.

The speech will take place in the Delaware Room on Thursday, February 18 at 1:00pm. A Q&A will follow the presentation.

Volunteers are coming in from all across the country to help us make an impact at CPAC, and discounted tickets and lodging are going fast.  “Lincoln on Liberty” is just one of many great activities we have planned(including the nonintervention forum mentioned earlier by Jesse, a live taping of Judge Napolitano’s Freedom Watch at the C4L booth, a Tom Woods event on nullification, and much, much more.)  Find further CPAC details here and reserve your spot today.
