Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It was the bloodiest battle ever fought on North American soil. In three days, more than 50,000 Confederate and Union soldiers were killed in the hills and fields surrounding Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Several months later, on November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg to help dedicate the cemetery where row upon row of graves marked the men lost in battle. His moving speech, which took only two minutes to recite, would inspire the nation and stay in the hearts and minds of Americans forever.

Synopsis:

Though all Americans learn about the Gettysburg Address in school, most probably don't remember what Abraham Lincoln's words meant. Yet Lincoln's words, carefully chosen and arranged, redefined the purpose of the Civil War. Full color.
