Fewer people than you may think have read or even heard of the Gettysburg Address. Fewer still have read or heard of the Emancipation Proclamation or Pericles Funeral Oration, including many teachers and academics. If you are looking to get an A - or if you are just curious, this audio will put you ahead of the class! This audio book has 14 tracks and the author provides three readings: the Gettysburg Address itself; the related Emancipation Proclamation; and the Pericles Funeral Oration, which the Gettysburg Address was based upon. The author gives a brief review of the times; the Civil War; the surrender at a private home that most think was a court house; a review of Lincoln's life; analysis of Thucydides, who provided the transcript of Pericles Funeral Oration; Martin Luther King's choice to give his "I Have a Dream" speech at the Lincoln Memorial on the 100th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address; and an analysis of his life, which brought the Gettysburg Address into the 20th century. Finally, there are additional notes and discussion topics for students, teachers, and all of us. This is a necessary listen for Americana followers, as well as all Americans interested in our history.
