Chapter fifty-two discusses at length Hodge’s sympathetic views of Lincoln. Lincoln’s death came a severe blow to Hodge, who considered the martyred President as one of America’s greatest men. He published his “President Lincoln” article in the Repertory as an attempt to make sense of God’s providence in Lincoln’s assassination. After the end of the War, Hodge wished to see the Old School Presbyterians from North and South reunited, but such a reunion was doomed to failure. Hodge was also criticized for his commitment to gradual emancipation, and once again defended his biblical position on slavery even after the end of the War.
