Abraham Lincoln As The "Founders' Son"

Basic Books

Politicians love to talk about the founding fathers of America, even if they often misquote or misinterpret them. 

But what about the NEXT generation of leaders, after the founding fathers? 

Writer/historian Richard Brookhiser focuses on Abraham Lincoln, who he calls Founders' Son in his book by that title. 

Brookhiser visits the Exchange to talk about how much Lincoln relied on the work of the founding fathers.   
(Originally scheduled for February 12th).
