Journey through History with David McCullough
In this video, in the hours before Election Day, historian David McCullough reflects on America's past -- including our founding fathers' campaign tactics. He shares that by nature we are optimistic people, and we've always had a reason to be. He also says that we've always had reason to believe that we are a nation in decline and we want somebody in office who will address the problems and do things that aren't popular.
David McCullough has been widely acclaimed as a “master of the art of narrative history.” He is twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize, twice winner of the National Book Award, and has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award.
His most recent book, The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris, the number one New York Times best seller, has been called “dazzling,” …“history to be savored.” His work 1776, has been acclaimed “a classic,” while John Adams, published in 2001, remains one of the most praised and widely read American biographies of all time.
