“Citizens and statesmen alike ought to study Lincoln’s statesmanship. It is the standard for all those who strive to preserve and renew the principles of liberty and equality.”

~ Kevin LoTruglio

About

I am interested in the statesmanship of Abraham Lincoln. Citizens and statesmen alike ought to study Lincoln’s statesmanship because it continues to serve as the standard for all those who strive to preserve and renew the principles of liberty and equality that make America the ‘last best hope of the earth.’ Upon graduating, I intend to teach at a liberal arts college that instructs students in the principles of Western Civilization and the American Founding. In addition, I hope to write books on Lincoln and the Founding in order to further and perpetuate the work of Harry V. Jaffa.

In the Northwest Ordinance of 1787 Congress resolved that ‘[r]eligion, morality, and knowledge, being necessary to good government and the happiness of mankind, schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged.’ Two centuries thereafter, Hillsdale College, a product of that ordinance, has demonstrated itself to be the best school in the country for furthering the liberal education the Founders had sought to provide the nation’s greatest statesmen.
