On Tuesday, September 22 at 7 p.m. the Hudson Library & Historical Society will host a live virtual streaming event with historian and author Richard Striner, who will discuss his book, Summoned to Glory: The Audacious Life of Abraham Lincoln. In the book, Striner sheds significant new light on Abraham Lincoln, one of the most studied figures in American history.
Striner takes a fresh look at many topics and themes important to Lincoln’s story that either revise or add new meaning to the work of previous biographers. He emphasizes the workings of Lincoln’s mind, stressing his cunning, honesty and strategic thinking, and provides insights into Lincoln’s life, antebellum America and the military and political history of the Civil War
Striner is the author of Father Abraham: Lincoln’s Relentless Struggle to End Slavery, Lincoln’s Way: How Six Great Presidents Created American Power and many other works on American history.
