Lincoln's Body: A Cultural History

20m

Guest: Richard Fox, history professor at the University of Southern California and author of the book Lincoln’s Body: A Cultural History  What comes to mind when you think of Abraham Lincoln? Maybe the commander-in-chief during the civil war? His words at the Gettysburg address? Or how about the Emancipation Proclamation that began the process of freeing America’s slaves? Apparently, his political accomplishments were not the only focus during the 16th president’s time in office. Many were fascinated by his appearance which many characterized as homely.  “He seemed to be asymmetrical, too long in the legs and too short in torso. He was very tall. That was enough to make people think he was very strange. One of the most common adjectives to describe him was grotesque. He appeared to be almost alien," says Fox.
