Lincoln, Slavery, and the Dred Scott Case Professor Allen Guelzo talked about Abraham Lincoln, his views on slavery, and the Dred Scott Supreme Court decision. Professor Guelzo described Lincoln’s upbringing and the career path that led him to debates with Stephen Douglas during an 1858 U.S. Senate race, during which one of the main topics was the issue of slavery in the United States.
