Illustrated Gettysburg Addressby Roberta E. Landon, Roberta Landon

The Gettysburg Address is regarded as perhaps the finest of American speeches--a speech that poet Carl Sandburg called "the great American poem." It is reproduced line by line throughout the pages of this wonderful book which captures the great emotion and turmoil of the Civil War era.
Also included are first hand accounts of John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry, the original Emancipation Proclamation, writings on slavery, quotes about both the Union and Confederate generals, and descriptions of devastation from a war that Lincoln claimed "is killing me." Extraordinary archival photographs bring this distant time vividly to life.
