Ted Widmer, author of ‘Lincoln on the Verge’

July 05, 2021
Abraham Lincoln’s journey to Washington, D.C., to take the oath of office was the most dangerous in history. In his book “Lincoln on the Verge”, professor Ted Widmer details Lincoln’s perils and progress, which includes a stop in Indianapolis where he almost lost the text to his first inaugural address. The “Leaders and Legends” podcast is honored to have one of country’s leading historians on to discuss one of the most brilliant and fascinating books I’ve ever read.
