Person Place Thing Episode 27: Eric Foner

Jun 12, 2013

Historian Eric Foner is particularly admired for his writing on reconstruction. His most recent book, The Fiery Trial: Abraham Lincoln and American Slavery, won pretty much every prize going including the Pulitzer and – can this be right? – Cy Young Award. Probably a typo. He is our only guest to have written for robots, revising the scripts for Robot Abe Lincoln at Disneyworld and Disneyland.

  • PERSON: W.E.B. Dubois
  • PLACE: New York's Metropolitan Opera House
  • THING: Dress sword given him by West Point Corps of cadets
