In 1860 Abraham Lincoln delivered numerous lyceum lectures, a practice very popular at that time. This lecture on “Discoveries and Inventions” was given in towns near Lincoln’s home, Springfield, Illinois, and in Springfield itself on Washington’s Birthday.
Citing Biblical references, Lincoln describes the efforts of humans to improve workmanship through their labor, from the development of clothing to inventions of various forms of transportation.
