Q & Abe


Bonus: Dreaming of Emancipation

Season 1

This bonus episode accompanies our first episode, How could Lincoln sleep if slavery was happening?

Our journey answering these questions has led to conversations, discoveries, and stories of all kinds, not all of which fit directly within the question we’re answering. But they’re so interesting that we didn’t want to keep them to ourselves. During our interview with Jon White, he told us a fascinating story about a Civil War soldier’s dream that illustrates the impact of the Emancipation Proclamation on the subconscious of everyday people.
