Americans should learn more about Abraham Lincoln and his incredible life
By Newt Gingrich (Original source Fox News)
“With the single exception of George Washington, President Abraham Lincoln is likely the most important president in American history.
This is why I decided to discuss Lincoln in this week’s episode of my Newt’s World podcast.
Without Lincoln, the Civil War would have likely ended with the South leaving the Union. America as the founders designed it would have been broken. America as we know it would not exist.
Without Lincoln, the moral basis of freedom – that it is a God-given right to all people – would never have been quite so clearly articulated in 1800s America.
Without Lincoln, so many things that we take for granted today would have never become true.
Lincoln was the most complex – and probably the smartest – person to ever occupy the White House in our history. (To qualify this: I’ve written four novels about the Civil War, and I have spent years studying Lincoln). He is actually at the center of defining America and its future.”
