Lucas Morel’s ‘Lincoln and the American Founding’ is a timely reminder of how our constitutional governance is incompatible with slavery and a rebuke to those who say our founding ideals are irredeemably racist.
In many ways, the adoption of the 1619 Project doesn’t essentially change American history for most students. It still relies on the same methods of history instruction.
We still overlook how much Alexander Hamilton shaped American institutions that support civic culture, free enterprise, liberty, and self-government.

Thomas Jefferson’s first draft held that our rights were ‘sacred and undeniable.’ What did we lose or gain by this change to America’s founding document?
Too many have distorted or forgotten the words of the Declaration of Independence. In our defense of liberty, we cannot abandon the text’s core principles.
