It may make you look at "Honest Abe" in a new light.
Here's an excerpt:
Our history books teach us that Lincoln ran for office repeatedly, losing over and over. He opposed slavery and won the presidency. The south hated him and seceeded. We had a civil war to bring them back into the fold. The north won and everything was clear sailing after that.Feel free to agree ... or disagree. I just hope it makes you think.
Our history books leave out a lot of details. And fudge some facts.
