The values each of us hold dear, and the choices we make as free individuals, are heavily influenced by what we draw from experience. An informed appreciation of history enables each of us to appropriate the wealth of accumulated human experience beyond our own. Abraham Lincoln lived a quarter century in Illinois. Throughout his life in Illinois he had an impact on the citizens and they had an impact on him. Learn how Lincoln developed key character traits that would make him the Great Emancipator.
