Abstract In this special performance edition of the Journal, actor Sam Waterston and historian Harold Holzer explore Lincoln's legacy and legend as defined in poetry and prose by significant American writers who, across the decades, have wrestled to envision Lincoln through the lens of their own experiences and times. Afterward, Bill Moyers sits down with Waterston and Holzer to talk about the Gettysburg Address, Lincoln's maturation as President, the arc of history that connects Lincoln with President Obama, and the challenges of portraying and writing about the incomparable Abraham Lincoln.
