ABRAHAM LINCOLN AND JEFFERSON DAVIS: A COMPARISON OF THEIR LIVES AND LEADERSHIP   

n 1861 Abraham Lincoln became the President of the United States and Jefferson Davis became President of the Confederate States. Despite being born within 150 miles of each other and being almost the same age, these men went on to lead very different lives. This class will compare and contrast the path each took, which eventually led to him becoming President. After each became President, they faced each other on opposite sides of the Civil War. The scale of the war and the challenges it presented for each man were unprecedented in our history. Lincoln and Davis each had their own style of management and their own process for selecting both civilian and military leaders. This class will look at the way that each man managed the war and, in turn, how each changed during the war.
