Learning about the past makes the present so much more understandable. And comfort can be found in reading about how Americans have overcome previous challenges and even catastrophes.

This is a lead in to a story on 4 new history book titles, including Joe Ellis’ new book on the founders; Jon Kukla on Jefferson’s women; Steven Berry on Lincoln and his in-laws; and David Blight’s book on slavery and emancipation.
