Abraham Lincoln is usually remembered for his work on the Emancipation Proclamation, not for his contributions to U.S. foreign policy. Hari Sreenivasan talks to Kevin Peraino, author of "Lincoln in the World: The Making of a Statesman and the Dawn of American Power" about another side of Lincoln's presidency so often overlooked.
