Long-lost Historical Document Makes News

Did President Abraham Lincoln believe in God? The topic has been debated for past 150 years and this week, new light was cast on the question with the discovery of a long-lost letter from Lincoln’s former law partner, William Herndon. The answer? His beliefs were complex and evolved over time – he was a Theist and Rationalist and one-time Pantheist. Pantheism, by the way, asserts that God is in everything. I know about this letter because I wrote the press release for the company with the document in its possession – the Raab Collection. One of the great things about working as a content writer is you never know what assignment will pop into your inbox. It was also exciting to see the story picked up by CNN, Discovery Channel and Huffington Post. If you want to see the document, visit raabcollection.com.
