Author and law professor Gary Solis looks at the 1863 Lieber Code authored by legal scholar Francis Lieber during the Civil War. The document was one of the first attempts to codify the conventions governing the conduct of troops during wartime. In this program, Mr. Solis examines John Witt’s book, “Lincoln’s Code: The Laws of War in American History,” and argues that President Lincoln did not play a significant role in drafting the document. Later, a panel discusses the origins of the Lieber Code, and its relevance today. This is the second of a two-part series hosted by the Lincoln Group of the District of Columbia.
