Fox & Friends co-host and New York Times best selling author Brian Kilmeade joins the Heartland Daily Podcast to discuss his new book, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and Their Battle to Save America's Soul.

This is Kilmeade's third time on the Heartland podcast talking about his popular history books. Hosts Jim Lakely and Chris Talgo talk to Kilmeade about the relationship between Lincoln and Douglass, the development of their special friendship, the state of race relations in the 19th Century compared to today, the zealotry of abolitionist John Brown, the lack of proper history teaching in America's schools, the "calamity" of the assassination of President Lincoln, and what Douglass would have thought of the Black Lives Matter movement and riots in the summer of 2020.
