The Real Abe

May 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.

We hope you enjoy our work.
