This is a very short but poignant book. Everyone has heard the Gettysburg Address. I did not realize there were different versions. The one we most likely know well is the Bliss version or the 5 th version. Look at that speech, line by line....it was powerful then and it is powerful today.

In large lettering, this book reprints Lincoln's most famous speech, overlaying the text upon actual photographs of Civil War battlefields, paintings of the Founding Fathers, maps, period drawings of battles, and period newspaper clippings. The original speech, in Lincoln's own writing, is reprinted at the end of the book.

Some will complain you can find the Gettysburg Address all over the Internet for free. But there's little doubt most kids (and adults) learn better when they have visual images...more

It's the freaking Gettysburg Address. How can you not give it 5 stars? I could go for a shorter introduction by the author though.

I don't really care about your dad, guy. Get to the Lincoln talky bits.

Here are a few more thoughts. It has pictures, so that's cool. Off the top of my head, I would list the Gettysburg Address as a top 5 speech ever given.

Other than the GA (that's what I call it), there was the best man speech I gave at my friend's wedding, the impromptu speech in 9th grade English...more

This is a wonderful book with some images that were recently found, and never before seen. A great book for those memorizing the Gettysburg Address as well.

A beautifully illustrated pictorial rendition of Lincoln's famous address....wonderful drawings and primary sources to use with students.

This is an awesome book! The accompanying illustrations to Lincoln's speech underscore the drama of the historical context seldom appreciated from any but the most polished orations of the work. I believe a copy of this book belongs in every classroom in every elementary, middle, jr. high, and high school--public, private, and parochial--in this country. If you do not have a copy of this book, hie thee hence to your favorite indie or chain book store and get one. Seriously. Why are you still rea...more

Aside from the fact that I have since seen who the "grate" one really is and that I do not like him much, this book is truly crap. I bought it because at the time, I was liking him. This was in my mid-awakening years. He talked on his show about how his father had originally painstakingly created the original print of this book. The book the text from the Gettysburg Address with a bunch of pictures of dead soldiers. Not worth the money.

This book is incredibly interesting and inspiring. The reproduction of Lincoln's speech, and the scenes from our nation's history help to make the Civil war more of a reality for those of us who have forgotten its significance. The foreword also works to inspire through the author's own history, told in the words of his son. It is definitely a quick, but worthwhile read.
Julie Unruh
The authors of the "Illustrated Historical Project #1: The Gettysburg Address," Oliver Hall and Julie Unruh, have put photos of important figures in the civil war and slave pictures also to balance it out. It is very good, how they put figured who have impacted the history of the Gettysburg and the Civil War.
Stephen Gledhill
I have great respect for the leadership of men who have conviction of conscience even those who I disagree with. The course of the USA may have been different if it were not for decisions made before the Civil War but I am grateful for my country and am praying for continued liberty and exceptionalism.
Kayla
The book contained tons of intersting information and photos on the war and Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. Short but sweet.
Mark Polino
Phenomenal. This simple book should absolutely be used to teach the Gettysburg Address in school. Simply beautiful.
Jennifer
Amazing photos paired with the text of the Gettysburg address. Recommended for everyone!
