LINCOLN AS STRATEGIST: EXERCISING THE ELEMENTS OF NATIONAL POWER

WAR ROOM welcomes back featured contributor, Mari K. Eder to take a look at the strategic accomplishments of President Abraham Lincoln. Inspired by a print of Lincoln signing the famous Lieber Code, Mari examines how each of the President’s strategic actions were designed to preserve the Union. From the Land Grant College Act, to the Emancipation Proclamation, to the Lieber Code itself, Lincoln employed all elements of national power at his disposal to try and bring the Confederate states back to the Union and end the war.
