This is our 4th of July salute to the American Spirit. Pun intended. At the start of this interview with President Abraham Lincoln, we were joined by two very special guests, Jimi Hendrix and Francis Scott Key, whose places in history although very different, are very alike as well. Francis Scott Key, who penned "The Star-Spangled Banner" in 1814 and Jimi Hendrix, who made our National Anthem immortal in the souls of those who ever heard him play it, seems like an unlikely pair, but struck up a conversation about each other's talents in writing and playing an instrument.
On to President Lincoln.
In a heated political arena, how often do you hear, "What was the intent of our Forefathers?" Now, you can hear for yourself what Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of this great nation, thinks about where we are and it's not good. We can only hope that Americans wake up and smell the tea.
