Abraham Lincoln’s second inaugural address is widely considered one of the greatest speeches in American political history. Edward’s Achorn’s book, Every Drop of Blood: The Momentous Second Inauguration of Abraham Lincoln, tells the story of that speech through the eyes and ears of those who witnessed it, including Walt Whitman, Frederick Douglass, and John Wilkes Booth. The author talked about that portentous day in March 1865 with Frank Williams of the Lincoln Forum, which hosted this conversation and provided the video. close
