Revisiting Lincoln

This seems a good time to consider Abraham Lincoln, again. Perhaps the alternate history writers among will be interested in some what-if scenarios regarding this iconic U.S. president. This National Endowment for the Arts article briefly describes the changing view that the citizenry has had for the man over the decades.

The article, from the NEA's Humanities magazine, also has links to three related articles: Looking for Lincoln: Journalist Andrew Ferguson and NEH Chairman Bruce Cole discuss America’s love-hate relationship with our sixteenth president. Douglas Wilson's article on Lincoln’s legal papers reveals a "surprising cache of sundry clients and dramatic litigation." Lewis Lehrman talks to NEH Chairman Bruce Cole about Abraham Lincoln’s pivotal speech in 1854 (Kansas-Nebraska Act).
