Institute for Honor 2015: “Lincoln and the Founders” with Richard Brookhiser

Here’s Richard Brookhiser delivering an address on Lincoln and George Washington at Washington and Lee University. Unfortunately, the first 24 minutes is taken up by Professor Lucas Morel, who is supposed to be introducing Brookhiser but instead delivers his own address in the guise of an introduction.

The video’s description reads, “Richard Brookhiser is the author most recently of ‘Founders’ Son: A Life of Abraham Lincoln’ (Basic Books, 2014), and of eight books on revolutionary America: ‘Founding Father, Rediscovering George Washington;’ ‘Rules of Civility—the 110 Precepts That Guided Our First President in War and Peace;’ ‘Alexander Hamilton, American;’ ‘America’s First Dynasty: The Adamses 1735-1918;’ ‘Gentleman Revolutionary: Gouverneur Morris, the Rake Who Wrote the Constitution;’ ‘What Would the Founders Do? Our Questions, Their Answers;’ ‘George Washington on Leadership,’ and ‘James Madison.’ He is author and host of two films by Michael Pack: ‘Rediscovering George Washington’ (PBS, 2002) and ‘Rediscovering Alexander Hamilton’ (PBS, 2011). He was the historian curator of ‘Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America,’ a 2004 exhibition at the New-York Historical Society. In 2008 he was awarded the National Humanities Medal. Brookhiser is a senior editor of National Review.”
