Todd Brewster talked about his book, Lincoln’s Gamble: The Tumultuous Six Months that Gave America the Emancipation Proclamation and Changed the Course of the Civil War, in which he recounts the six months between when President Lincoln announced his plans to free the slaves on July 12, 1862, and the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863. In his book, the author reports that contrary to popular belief, Lincoln struggled with his decision, and spent a great deal of time crafting the document as he battled moments of self-doubt and depression. Todd Brewster spoke at Ridgefield Library in Ridgefield, Connecticut. close
