James Simon talked about his book, Lincoln and Chief Justice Taney: Slavery, Secession, and the President’s War Powers, published by Simon and Schuster. Professor Simon examined the relationship between Abraham Lincoln and Chief Justice Roger Taney and discussed the backgrounds and beliefs of both men. He explained that even though the then president and Chief Justice Taney, the man who administered the oath of office to Lincoln, disagreed on secession, slavery, and the president’s wartime authority, they actually had a lot in common and could have worked together under different circumstances. After his presentation the author responded to audience members' questions. close
