Here’s Richard Brookhiser speaking at the 2016 Lincoln Forum Symposium on Lincoln and the Founding Fathers.

The video’s description reads, “Richard Brookhiser talked about how the ideas of Founding Fathers such as George Washington, Thomas Paine, and Thomas Jefferson influenced Abraham Lincoln’s thoughts and policies during the Civil War. He highlighted Lincoln’s upbringing and passion for education.”
