The Gettysburg Address Abraham Lincoln Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Four and a half months after the Union Army defeated the Confederacy at the Battle of Gettysburg, President Abraham Lincoln gave a dedication speech to the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in the same city. It is one of the most well-known speeches in United States history.

The speech itself was read in a little more than two minutes yet the careful wording and presentation identified for everyone that the principles the nation was built on during the Revolutionary War still rang true: Equality for all mankind, without persecution or an inhibiting of freedom.

There are five copies of the speech, the first two given to each of Lincoln’s secretaries and the other three copied after the speech was presented and given by Lincoln for charitable purposes.
