Jon Meacham Abraham Lincoln And The American Struggle

REGISTER

A belligerent democracy, clashing visions of the nation’s future, money, power, race, faith – and a president hated as much as he was hailed.

Those aren’t just modern realities, but the challenges faced by America’s 16th president as he led a country at war with itself.

Jon Meacham’s vivid new biography, And There Was Light: Abraham Lincoln and the American Struggle, pulls back the veil on the iconic figure to reveal a child of the frontier steeped in Baptist sermons of emancipation, and an adult of deepening faith in the ability of conscience to expand the possibilities of democracy.

Mr. Meacham joins us to discuss President Lincoln’s convictions and political failures – and how the ways and means of politics have and have not changed over the past 160 years.

Jon Meacham is the author of seven New York Times bestsellers and holds the Carolyn T. and Robert M. Rogers Chair in American Presidency at Vanderbilt University.
