Abraham Lincoln's Legacy

On February 12th, our nation celebrates Abraham Lincoln's 200th birthday. Dialogue notes the occasion by looking at America's 16th president and his ties to Idaho history.

Joan Cartan-Hansen is joined by three Lincoln scholars: David Leroy, the chair of Idaho's Lincoln Bicentennial Commission; Dave Adler, Professor of Political Science at Idaho State University; and Linda Brady, Associate Professor of History at Boise State University. Dave Adler's appearance is made possible by funding from the Idaho Humanities Council.
