Iowa Governor Terry Branstad Presented with Book

Iowa Governor Terry Branstad
Last month David Hirsch was privileged to present Iowa Governor Terry Branstad with a copy of Abraham Lincoln and the Structure of Reason. The book was inscribed, "To Governor Branstad, Thank you for returning to public service. May you govern like Lincoln, bringing people together." It was signed by both authors.

The Governor, who did not know he was going to receive the book, proceeded to give an impressive discourse on how Lincoln brought the country together not only North and South, but east and west (as a result of his push for rail). The Governor then brought up several of Lincoln's Iowa connections.
