UAA professor Forrest A. Nabors presents the annual Lincoln Day Polaris Lecure, “The Statesmanship of Abraham Lincoln: A Reappraisal.” The Polaris Lecture Series is sponsored by the Forty-Ninth State Fellows Program, University Honors Society and the Polaris Society.

Few Americans exceed Abraham Lincoln in popular esteem. But how great was he? In commemoration of Lincoln’s birthday, Professor Nabors will explain why Lincoln achieved even more for liberty than is generally understood.

Professor Nabors joined the political science faculty at UAA in Aug. 2011. He taught American government and political philosophy at Oregon State University and at University of Oregon, where he also completed his doctorate in 2011. He currently is writing a book about American political development through post-Civil War Reconstruction.
