February 9, 2009

“An Abraham Lincoln Tribute”
Since a boyhood visit to Ford’s Theater in Washington, D.C. — where his relative Joseph Sessford collected tickets on the evening Abraham Lincoln was assassinated — Senator Brown has shared the fascination of countless Americans with our 16th president. He explores Lincoln’s life and what it means to us today.
