Our summer 2021 issue of Forum, which is devoted to the theme of friendship, includes an article by James Tackach that chronicles a budding friendship between Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist Frederick Douglass cut short by Lincoln's assassination. If you missed Tackach's essay, you can read it here.

If you could meet one historical figure who is no longer with us, who would it be? Why is that person your choice? What do you imagine your conversation would be about?

We'd love to hear from you. Extend the conversation in our online member community Link.
