Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) was a masterful politician. His skill in government was matched by his skill as a great orator. Contained in this volume are 16 of his greatest moments behind the podium. The famed words, "Four score and seven years ago" resonate today as they did when they rang from Lincoln's mouth at Gettysburg in 1836. Considered one of the most important speeches in American history, the Gettysburg Address is but one of the memorable moments in this collection. The speeches collected here highlight the great range and power of America's 16th president who lead the country through one of its most trying times. Through these documents we witness Lincoln with tremendous intimacy. "Great Speeches" includes the House Divided speech of 1858, the First Inaugural Address of 1861, the Gettysburg Address of 1863, his Last Public Address of 1865, and many more. Combined, these speeches demonstrate the depth and sophistication of Lincoln's thoughts on democracy, war, and liberty. This collection is an invaluable resource for students, American history enthusiasts, and Lincoln admirers alike.
