That’s the question I ponder at a new piece I’ve written for the Abraham Lincoln Institute blog. See what you think, and feel free to add your comments over at that site.
I’ve enjoyed having the opportunity to pitch in over at the Institute blog, both as a contributor and editor. Let me take this opportunity to ask that you make it one of your regular online stops if you’re a history blog reader, and to add it to your blogroll if you’re a history blog writer. In the near future we’ll be posting some interviews with Lincoln scholars and other material of interest, so check it out.
