He attends a national conference of Lincoln impersonators; attends a leadership conference based on Lincoln's "management style"; drags his family across the three-state-long (and now defunct) Lincoln Heritage Trail; and even manages to hold one of five original copies of the Gettysburg Address. Along the way, he weaves in enough history to hook readers of presidential biographies and popular histories while providing the engaging voice and style of the best narrative journalism. This is an entertaining, unexpected, and big-hearted celebration of Lincoln and his enduring influence on the country he helped create.
