Great biography panel at the Mass. Historical Society

Carol Bundy chaired a terrific panel of Civil War-era biographers at the MHS on Thursday night:  Dean Grozzens on Theodore Parker, Tony Horwitz on John Brown, and Michael Burlingame on Lincoln.  The best quip of the night was Burlingame:   "I am a psychohistorian." <pause> "That's one word."
