Check out: History Channel-Abraham Lincoln


Abraham Lincoln

The HISTORY Channel’s three-night documentary event “Abraham Lincoln” will be a definitive biography of the 16th president, the man who led the country during its bloodiest war and greatest crisis. Executive produced by world-renowned presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize®-winning bestselling author Doris Kearns Goodwin, “Abraham Lincoln” is based upon Kearns Goodwin’s New York Times bestseller, “Leadership: In Turbulent Times.”

In addition to Kearns Goodwin herself, the list of interviewees also includes historian and former American Civil War Museum CEO Christy S. Coleman, Lincoln scholar Harold Holzer, retired U.S. Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal and former President Barack Obama.

I particularly appreciated the focus on Frederick Douglass-who is also considered the man of the century with Lincoln.
