In an attempt to heal a bitterly divided country after the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln preached moderation and forgiveness. John Avlon, senior political analyst and anchor at CNN, joins guest host John McCaa to discuss Lincoln as peacemaker, his approach of reason over brute strength, and how that was derailed after his assassination. His book is “Lincoln and the Fight for Peace.”
