Amazing, Engaging, Book for Nerds Like Me5 star

I love this book! ❤️ 📖 I’m a Lincoln-Nerd, I talked about/used him for my biography report, my speech report, and my act for the talent show. I’m also a book nerd! I annoy my friends by saying this too! Lol I learned how to say this much today: Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth upon 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. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that this nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate we cannot consecrate we cannot hallow that ground. (I did not copy paste) -Alex55

We Remember What Happened5 star

Abraham Lincoln beautifully constructed this short speech for the founding of the Gettysburg Military Cemetery. In it he says that we wouldn’t remember his small speech on that November day, but we remember the Gettysburg Address as one of the most important speeches ever spoken in American history. He explains why the soldiers gave their lives and why that is the most powerful devotion to their republic. He also reassures the entire nation that their freedom-loving union would not fall, but stay together. This speech will always be remembered in U.S. history.55
