Lincoln Lore and Legend

Abraham Lincoln rarely discussed his personal feelings or details of his early life; but in this presentation Spencer Davis sheds some light on Lincoln’s political controversies, as well as rail-splitting legends, the Ann Rutledge affair and other personal issues. A realistic perspective makes Lincoln’s achievements even more remarkable.
