Local Author focuses on President's 1854 speech
When people think of the great speeches by Abraham Lincoln, they tend to focus on the Gettysburg Address or the "House divided against itself cannot stand" remarks. But Greenwich resident Lewis Lehrman contends that the roots of the drive of the man who became the Great Emancipator can be traced to years before then.

A conversation with Lewis Lehrman
Arriving by train in Washington, D.C., Lewis Lehrman wore a soft old brown hat and carried one piece of luggage, a canvas duffel bag that he’s owned for so long that several times his wife has sent it back to the manufacturer to have the handles replaced. For lunch he wanted to go somewhere simple, for a sandwich, though several of the District’s finest restaurants were but a few steps away. He does not talk much about Rite Aid, Morgan Stanley, or his current investment business, but lights up at the mention of Abraham Lincoln, about whom he has just written a book, Lincoln at Peoria. “You can tell a patriot by how he refers to George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Washington preferred to be called General Washington and Lincoln, Mr. Lincoln. Even Mrs. Lincoln called him that, but also sometimes simply Lincoln. But never, ever Abe.”
