President Abraham Lincoln delivers a first-hand account of our nation’s history from our establishment in 1776 through the end of the Civil War in 1865. He discusses how our bold experiment in democracy, founded upon the ideals of liberty and equality, appeared destined to failure by 1854, but how the next dozen years instead brought a renewal and eventually an expansion of those great ideals: a “new birth of freedom”.
