Plot Summary

New introduction by Gabor S. Boritt

The Gettysburg Address is one of the most influential speeches in our history, written by Abraham Lincoln at a crucial period in his presidency and in United States history.

Caldecott Honoree and Newbery Medalist James Daugherty's pictorial interpretation of President Abraham Lincon's famous speech, the Gettysburg Address, was originally published by Albert Whitman & Company in 1947. This book is available again in a fresh new edition just in time for the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address with a new introduction by Lincoln- and Civil War-scholar Gabor S. Boritt.
