In this episode, I offer reflections on Lincoln’s Lyceum Address (also titled The Perpetuation of our Political Institutions) as well as provide a reading of the speech. Lincoln’s Lyceum Address was given in 1838, well before his time of fame as president, to a young men’s association in Illinois. He emphasizes the dangers we face as Americans from mob rule and a general disregard for law. Lincoln reflects upon their unique position in history in relation to the American Revolution and the necessary steps to preserve our political institutions in the future.
