The author provides three readings: Gettysburg Address itself,  the related Emancipation Proclamation, and the Pericles Funeral Oration, which the Gettysburg Address was based upon. The author gives a brief review of the times, including the Civil War; the surrender at a private home that most think was a court house; a review of Lincoln’s life; an analysis of Thucydides, who provided the transcript of Pericles Funeral Oration; Martin Luther King’s choice to give his “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial on the 100th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address; and an analysis of his life, which brought the Gettysburg Address into the twentieth century. Finally, there are additional notes and discussion topics for students, teachers, and all of us. This is a must listen for Americana followers as well as all Americans interested in our history.

About the Author

Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865) was the sixteenth president of the United States, serving from March 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. He led the US through its greatest constitutional, military, and moral crises—the American Civil War—preserving the Union, abolishing slavery, strengthening the national government, and modernizing the economy. Reared in a poor family in rural Indiana, he was a self-educated man. In the 1830s he became a country lawyer, a Whig Party leader, and Illinois state legislator. He later served as a one-term member of the House of Representatives during the 1840s.
