Read in December, 2008

A fresh look at some of the most famous words spoken in American history. I've read dozens of books on Lincoln and each time I come away more amazed at his unique ability to write, speak, and think with such clarity and eloquence. Wills really brings this home and studies these most famous words of Lincoln's in a new way.

Very interesting read, particularly in the analyzation of the style and format of the speech. I thought that chapter was especially well done.

This book is a must for the serious, or casual, amateur scholar who wants to know as much as they can about (in my opinion) our most fascinating President.
