LAND OF LINCOLN Adventures in Abe's America

by | Read by Patrick Lawlor

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

When journalist Andrew Ferguson revisits the places that fostered his boyhood admiration of Abraham Lincoln, he discovers an assortment of opinions as disparate as the nation itself. Ferguson blends myths and facts in a friendly, unassuming tone, and Patrick Lawlor provides a folksy, energetic narration. Ferguson offers both sides of arguments that still rage around Lincoln's policies--over 140 years after his death. Lawlor delivers them with the appropriately sardonic words "scholars differ." From the Sons of the Confederacy in Richmond protesting a Lincoln statue to the 175 Lincoln impersonators in Indiana, from a leadership conference on Lincoln's management style to the Disneyfication of the Lincoln Library in Springfield--Ferguson's keen observations and Lawlor's witty narration express multiple views of the president who preserved the Union.
