Fox News’s Brian Kilmeade joins Emily Jashinsky on “The Federalist Radio Hour” to discuss the little-known story of how two American heroes put their differences aside for the sake of democracy and friendship.

Kilmeade points to how Douglass was frustrated with Lincoln’s process for emancipation, but eventually, Douglass “began to see there was a method to Lincoln’s slowness.”
