Overview

“Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation,
conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”


 

Long before his conservative manifesto Liberty and Tyranny became a #1 New York Times bestseller, Mark R. Levin’s love for his country was instilled in him by his father, Jack E. Levin. At family dinners, Jack would share his bountiful knowledge of American history and, especially, the inspiration of Abraham Lincoln.

 

The son of immigrants, Jack Levin is an American patriot who responded with deep personal emotion
to Lincoln’s call for liberty and equality. His admiration for the great Civil War president inspired
him to personally design and produce a beautiful volume, enhanced with period illustrations and
striking battlefield images by Matthew Brady and other renowned photographers of the era, that
brings to life the words of Lincoln’s awe-inspiring response to one of the Civil War’s costliest conflicts.

 

Now Jack Levin’s loving homage to the spirit of American freedom is available in an essential edition
that features his original foreword as well as a touching new preface by his son, Mark Levin. In
this way, Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address Illustrated celebrates the passing of patriotic
pride and historical insight from generation to generation, from father to son.

The day following the dedication of the National Soldier’s Cemetery at Gettysburg, Edward Everett, who spoke before Lincoln, sent him a note saying: “Permit me to express my great admiration for the thoughts expressed by you, with such eloquent simplicity and appropriateness, at the consecration of the cemetery. I should be glad, if I could flatter myself that I came as near to the central idea of the occasion, in two hours, as you did in two minutes.”

 

Lincoln wrote back to Everett: “In our respective parts yesterday, you could not have
been excused to make a short address, nor I a long one. I am pleased to know that in
your judgement the little I did say was not entirely a failure.”

Four score and seven years ago,



Our fathers brought forth upon this continent,



a new nation,



conceived in Liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.



Now we are engaged in a great civil war,



testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure.



We are met on a great battlefield of that war.



We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live.



It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.



But in a larger sense, we can not dedicate?we can not consecrate?we can not hallow?this ground. The brave men living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.



The world will little note nor long remember what we say here,



but it can never forget what they did here.



It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.



It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us?that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion?



that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain?



that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom?



? with malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation?s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow and his orphan?to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations. ?from LINCOLN?S SECOND INAUGURAL ADDRESS


and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.



? 2010 Jack E. Levin

    Truth,Sorrow, America!

    To be able to use so few words with such profound insight is a gift. The Levine's have done it.

    Right on!

    I memorized this speech in High School. The words and history are alive today. This book outlines the background and underlines its meaning.
