The War on History—and Why It Matters

Make Sense of the Toppling of Statues with Award-Winning Historian Allen Guelzo

Lincoln statue removedCancel culture is coming for America’s past.

You’ve seen the statues torn down and schools renamed. But now it’s not just Confederate generals. Even Abraham Lincoln, widely considered America’s greatest president, has come under fire.

And the American Founders? Good luck trying to defend them these days.

How did we get here? When did American history turn into a tale of uninterrupted oppression? And how can you refute these radical accounts without whitewashing the past?

Here to answer these questions is one of America’s most eminent historians, Allen C. Guelzo.

Join Professor Guelzo live on Tuesday, January 19, at 7 p.m. ET. He will guide you through these thorny issues in a special edition of Conservative Conversations with ISI, cosponsored by the Heritage Foundation.

Professor Guelzo is one of the foremost experts on Abraham Lincoln and the Civil War. A three-time winner of the prestigious Lincoln Prize, he has also received the Bradley Prize for outstanding intellectual achievement.

You’ll see why he has earned such acclaim when you tune in on January 19. He will give you a balanced and informed view of history—the kind you don’t get from woke activists or their media enablers.

And you will learn how to counter the escalating attacks on America’s past.

Spots are limited. Reserve yours now to join this live discussion—and to ask Allen Guelzo your questions in real time!
