Abraham Lincoln was one of America's most unmusical presidents: he could neither play an instrument nor carry a tune. Yet he had a passionate love of the arts—enjoying everything from sentimental ballads to nonsense songs, from melodrama to opera. This 3-part audio series explores Lincoln’s relationship to the arts of his time.
