We always come back to Abraham Lincoln. The son of a dirt farmer who could barely sign his name, Lincoln rose to become perhaps the greatest President in the history of the United States. Lincoln’s character, intelligence and optimism, even in the midst of a bloody civil war, allowed him to create a new vision for the fractured country, one steeped in a more literal reading of the Declaration of Independence and our founding documents. Scenes from multiple Ken Burns films show how Lincoln has been central to the American story for more than 160 years. This event features a live conversation with Ken Burns.
