Kresta Comments: Lincoln’s Second Inaugural
Everyone knows Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, but some historians have argued it’s not his greatest. Instead, they point to his second inaugural address, delivered just a few weeks before his death. Al looks at what Lincoln said.
The Faith of Abraham Lincoln
On February 12, 1809, two extraordinarily influential men were born – Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln is arguably our most misunderstood president. He was a man of strong moral convictions who was involved in a personal religious odyssey and even wrote a profound meditation on the “will of God” in the Civil War. Ron White joins us with more.
