Bridges and Boats

In class, we continued our discussion about Lincoln. I must say I am surprised at how complex Lincoln and his handling of the issue of slavery are. His views of slavery were evolving with the times and Dr. Z compared this issue with President Obama’s evolving views of gay marriage.

The afternoon session was very productive for me. I got a lot of work done on my rough draft. Then, the five of us met up with Mrs. Lilhanand and Mrs. Kronenberg for a fabulous boat tour of New York. The view really made me realize how big New York City really is.

Tomorrow, we meet with Brian Farkas, a Vassar alum and our morning class will be a guest lecture by Nancy Ramsey, a journalist.
