A critical assessment of Herbert Croly's influential account of Abraham Lincoln in his 1909 book, The Promise of American Life, which argued that Progressivism was a continuation of the spirit of Lincoln's political thought.
This book argues for the first time that Croly's praise of Lincoln is highly problematic.
