Gettysburg Address

Gettysburg Address

by Abraham Lincoln


       

"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. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure..."

-Abraham Lincoln

This speech was delivered November 19, 1863.



Write a Review of Gettysburg Address

Three Contrasting Styles, May 30, 2006
Reviewer: Bob Robson

The "Gettysburg Address" is a masterpiece of American oratory. To my ear, Jeff Daniels' reading is somewhat fast and shrill, while Sam Waterston's is hesitant and flat. In contrast, Johnny Cash speaks (rather than reads) Lincoln's words as Lincoln himself might have done -- with quiet depth and dignity that builds to a noble, inspiring climax. Johnny Cash was not only a great country singer but a moving interpreter of the written word. -- R.R.
