-By Warner Todd Huston
National Review editor Rich Lowry has a new book out entitled, Lincoln Unbound and I recently participated in a Google Hangout with him and a few others to talk about the new tome.
We talk of Lincoln’s education, the books he read, his work as a lawyer, and most especially about his stance on slavery and how he treated it during the war.
We also discuss Lincoln’s detractors, folks such as Thomas DiLorenzo.
You can get Lincoln Unbound: How an Ambitious Young Railsplitter Saved the American Dream–and How We Can Do It Again at Amazon.com or where ever great books are sold.
“The only end of writing is to enable the reader better to enjoy life, or better to endure it.”
Warner Todd Huston is a Chicago based freelance writer. He has been writing opinion editorials and social criticism since early 2001 and before that he wrote articles on U.S. history for several small American magazines. His political columns are featured on many websites such as Andrew Breitbart’s BigGovernment.com, BigHollywood.com, and BigJournalism.com, as well as RightWingNews.com, RightPundits.com, CanadaFreePress.com, StoptheACLU.com, AmericanDaily.com, among many, many others. Mr. Huston is also endlessly amused that one of his articles formed the basis of an article in Germany’s Der Spiegel Magazine in 2008.
