Today, we discuss the life and writings of Abraham Lincoln with our guests Carolyn Curiel, former U.S. Ambassador and Senior Speechwriter for Bill Clinton; and Dr. Christian McWhirter, Lincoln Historian at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum.
If you are interested in reading Lincoln more and exploring his writing more in depth, the Papers of Abraham Lincoln Digital Library and the Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln are great resources. And, go here if you’d like to pick up Dr. McWhirter’s book, Battle Hymns: The Power and Popularity of Music in the Civil War.
Nation of Writers is a monthly series that explores our ever growing Nation of Writers by examining powerful and significant American Voices throughout history. This podcast is presented in conjunction with our new virtual exhibit which you can explore at NationOfWriters.org.
