An Evening With James McPherson

Pulitzer Prize winning author and North Dakota native James McPherson shared his insights into the character of Abraham Lincoln and his metamorphosis into this country’s first modern Commander-in-chief. Having to overcome incompetent and recalcitrant generals, Lincoln took up the reins of command even though he had no military experience.
