THE DEATH OF the great African-American historian Benjamin Quarles last week fell by chance almost exactly on the 133rd anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, that brief but unforgettable utterance that remade America.In the seeming coincidence are deep symbolic connections. Quarles' fellow historian, Garry Wills, wrote that it was Lincoln's genius to use the address to transform the ugly reality of the battlefield into something rich and strange, giving the nation a "new birth of freedom" to set against the horror, missed chances and muddle of the war.Yet, it was Quarles who broke new ground in understanding how Lincoln evolved as a historic figure.
