What does a good person do when his or her country commits a great evil? This is the question that historian H. W. Brands sets out to answer in his celebrated dual biography of John Brown and Abraham Lincoln. Both men opposed slavery. One sought to overturn it with vigilante violence. The other sought to confront it within the political power structure. In this two-part book discussion we will examine both the political and ethical issues of protest, unity and violence that were tied up in the events leading to the Civil War.

Make every day count. Discover your passions. Advance your career. Play and learn.
I started a new job as a graphic and web designer and the digital badge I got was part of the reason they chose to hire me. I couldn't have done it without you!
