National Park Service features book about Abraham Lincoln and Mexico

We are delighted to share a 15-minute podcast that the National Park Service created to help celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month during September. Here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3A3z575v6O8&list=PLSnXxXchTd2IqdHwnl5GMrBjwAxK20p-s&index=4&ab_channel=LincolnHomeNationalHistoricSite

As you can see, the podcast discusses the book Abraham Lincoln and Mexico by Michael Hogan and originated from Lincoln’s home in Springfield, Illinois, which is a historic site and part of the National Park System. The discussion between the park ranger and Dr. Hogan focuses on the official visit by Mexican Ambassador Matias Romero to pay respects to the newly-elected president before Lincoln was inaugurated.
The podcast also covers many other events that are evidence of Lincoln’s support for Mexico as a congressman and as president.
