“Texas Secession”? and Lincoln and Fear

In Q and A sessions, after speaking on my book, I’m often asked to quantify anti-Lincoln sentiment. That, of course, is a very hard thing to do. This is from the Houston Chronicle (thanks to Ed Sebesta for the link). Who would have thought this could have even been considered ten years ago?

Also, here is Corey Robin on NPR this morning. If you  go the 4:56 mark you’ll hear a discussion on Lincoln and fear-mongering (or, his relative lack of it). But, the entire interview is worthwhile, so take a listen.
