MUSINGS - "An Almost Chosen People" - Abraham Lincoln

Ronald C. White is the author of the New York Times bestselling American biographies A. Lincoln and American Ulysses. He is presently writing Abraham Lincoln's Diary [2020] and Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain: A Biography [2021].  The quotation, "Almost Chosen People" is from Abraham Lincoln.  In the present talk about American exceptionalism - "Make America Great Again" - our premise is the greatest American leaders - from presidents to civil rights advocates - have always tempered their praise with an "almost."  We will hear some of those voices this evening.
