The Real Abe

July 2024

I am on page 74 of your March issue (the photographs are wonderful) and have to stop and write this letter. My husband and I have subscribed for many years now. I have always had a fantasy that I could travel back in time—American Heritage is about as close as it gets. Your articles and pictures bring history to life. Suddenly Abe Lincoln was a real human being with warts and all, and the founders of the Constitution were humanized.

Well, I have to get back to the article about Benjamin Franklin and his predilection for rattlesnakes.

Enjoy our work? Help us keep going.

Now in its 75th year, American Heritage relies on contributions from readers like you to survive. You can support this magazine of trusted historical writing and the volunteers that sustain it by donating today.
