From the most humble of beginnings, Abraham Lincoln rose to the pinnacle of achievement; not only in politics but also in the hearts of Americans. Elected at a time when the country was literally ripping in two, it was the challenge of his administration to preserve the union. Did you know that he was NOT the main speaker at Gettysburg? Did you know that he died 1 1/2 years later convinced that the Gettysburg Address was his biggest failure? Full of humility and conviction in the same breath, this 2-part lecture series explores the life of one of the greatest men to live.
