Seeing today’s America through Lincoln’s eyes

Bloomberg Opinion Today

In 1913, the Lincoln Highway became one of the U.S.'s first transcontinental roadways and its first national memorial to the 16th president, linking the country from San Francisco to New York. You can still drive it today, though rarely is it called by its original name. But it still connects America's coasts, winding through 14 states and more than 700 towns in a country with a rich history and what, at least in these strange times, seems to be an uncertain future. Bloomberg Opinion's Frank Barry is hitting the road in a Winnebago with his wife to find out what connects America now. You can read the first installment, "Aboard a Winnebago in Search of Better Angels," in a series of dispatches from his travels on the Lincoln Highway.

This is the Theme of the Week edition of Bloomberg Opinion Today, a digest of our top commentary published every Sunday.
