Both Lincoln and FDR faced and overcame nation-threatening crises during their presidencies—yet approached their leadership challenges from completely different life and educational experiences. One of them—Roosevelt—at least had the opportunity to study and learn from Lincoln; the other used George Washington as his model. How did each leader deal with Congress—the military—the media—a restless electorate—as well as mortal threats to the very survival of this country? Harold...

For Americans, there was little “peace on earth” on the Christmases of 1861, 1862, 1863, and 1864.  But even as the Civil War raged, the holiday was celebrated in soldiers’ camps and civilian homes.  And even though most of the traditions that we think of when we think of a Victorian Christmas—Christmas cards, Christmas trees, Santa Claus—were relatively new to Civil War-era Americans, they were part of the celebrations.

America in 1861 was deeply divided and Americans were angry and confused. America in 2019 is deeply divided and Americans are angry and confused. All partisanship aside, the news and analysis of today underscores one more time: The presence of Abraham Lincoln on the American scene remains a force to be invoked in the time of Twitter just as it was in the time of the Telegraph, featuring panelists Dr. Katherine Fleck, Paul Helmke, and Gene Policiniski.

Presented by Thomas D. Mackie, Jr., former director of the Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum at Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee. Americans’ memory of our 16th president dominates the over 70 museums, historic sites, archives, and libraries devoted to him. Scattered relics hoarded by groups of devoted Lincoln followers in the 19th and early 20th century created a pattern for his public memory and these museums’ collections, fashioning a merger between reverential shrines...
