Lincoln is one of America’s best-loved presidents. Does he really need redemption? Allen C. Guelzo says yes, in his new book called, appropriately, Redeeming the Great Emancipator.
In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Guelzo explains why Lincoln suffers a barrage of attacks today, what motivated him to issue the Emancipation Proclamation, and whether he was a racist and an atheist.

"While I have known of your work for a long time, sadly, I had never heard you give a talk until January 31, 2018. I found you on youtube.com when you spoke on the Gettysburg Address at Washington and Lee University in 2014. Your speech is the best historical oration I have ever heard! Your presentation was rich in content; substantial, and you were able to deliver the material with poise, power, and the clarity possessed by some of our greatest orators-FDR, JFK, and MLK, Jr. You are an amazing talent-a gifted historian and presenter. Your knowledge of President Abraham Lincoln probably made him blush from the heavens. After hearing your speech, I could not long resist sending you this note. Thank you for modeling what it means to be an historian, and how a scholar can positively impact our society."
