Описание

New Narration. Fewer people than you may think have read or even heard of the Gettysburg Address. Fewer still have read or heard of the Emancipation Proclamation or Pericles Funeral Oration, including many teachers and academics. If you're looking to get an A - or if you're just curious - this audio will put you ahead of the class!
This audiobook has 14 tracks:
1. Introduction. 2. The Civil War: 1861-1865. 3. Surrender at McLean House in Appomattox Court House, Virginia: 1865. 4. Lincoln and His Life. 5. Gettysburg Address: Occasion and Purpose. 6. Reading of the Gettysburg Address: 1863. 7. Model for the Gettysburg Address: Pericles and His Funeral Oration. 8. Thucydides the Source: ca.460 BC to ca. 395 BC. 9. Reading the Pericles Funeral Oration: 431 BC. 10. Reading the Emancipation Proclamation: 1863. 11. Martin Luther King's Comments from his "I Have a Dream" Speech: 1963. 12. Martin Luther King & His Life: 1929-1968. 13. Simply Notes.
The author provides three readings: Gettysburg Address itself; the related Emancipation Proclamation; and Pericles Funeral Oration, which the Gettysburg Address was based upon. The author gives a brief review of the times; the Civil War; the surrender at a private home that most think was a court house; a review of Lincoln's life; 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 20th 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.

Об авторе

Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865) was the sixteenth president of the United States and a pioneer in abolishing slavery. Lincoln was born into poverty in Hardin County, Kentucky. As a young man, he fought in the Black Hawk War, during which he made strong political connections. In 1834, Lincoln was elected to the Illinois state legislature as a member of the Whig Party. He then devoted much of his time to studying law, which eventually led to his single term in the United States House of Representatives. In 1856, Lincoln joined the Republican Party, using his position as a platform to speak against slavery in the Confederacy. Four years later, he was elected president. The Civil War erupted shortly after. In 1862, Lincoln delivered his famous Emancipation Proclamation, successfully freeing slaves in the Confederacy. Lincoln penned many more speeches and essays, most famously his Gettysburg Address. John Wilkes Booth, a Confederacy sympathizer, assassinated Lincoln at the Ford’s Theatre in 1865.

  • (4/5)
    Having driven through Gettysburg today, it was wonderful to read this with my boys tonight. They are very interested in the Revolutionary War... hoping to expand their enjoyment of American history!
  • (4/5)
    The illustrations only add to this powerful speech made by President Lincoln at the time of the civil war. His speech and the illustration takes you back in time when our nation was torn apart. What an incredi ble book to read.
  • (3/5)
    Great connections and key questions to consider. Not the highest quality reading.
  • (5/5)
    A handsomely designed reissue of Daugherty's bold, elegant illustrated accompanyment to the speech originally published in 1947. This edition includes Daugherty's original afterword, a new afterword by a Civil War scholar and the artist's own interpretations of each illustration.
