Reagan: Lion at the Gate

The new issue of On Principle just landed on my desk (it will be mailed on Monday), but you can read it on-line now. The issue is devoted to Reagan, and includes his talk here when he opened the Center, my "Ronald Reagan, American," and most importantly, a long and wonderful piece from Steve Hayward, called "Lion at the Gate." This is the prologue (without footnotes) of Hayward’s upcoming book, The Age of Reagan: Lion at the Gate, 1980-1989. It is a must read, a wonderful piece about the Great Liberator, laying out in detail Reagan’s statesmanship (focusing on "Open this gate, tear down this wall"), with the appropriate comparisons to our other hero Churchill.

Have you got a link to the handwritten letter by the President announcing that he had Alzimers?


At the bottom of the page, you’ll find a hyperlink that should take you to a PDF facsimile of the actual letter. It wasn’t working right when I tried to view the PDF in my browser window, so your best bet might be to right click on the link and "save target as" to your computer.

Beautiful. Thank you.
