Celebrate the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln’s birth with this new edition of his greatest speeches and writings Abraham Lincoln endowed the American language with a vigor and moral energy that has all but disappeared from today’s public rhetoric. Lincoln’s writings are testaments of our history, windows into his enigmatic personality, and resonant examples of the writer’s art. The Portable Abraham Lincolncontains the great public speeches—the first debate with Stephen Douglas, the House Divided”speech, the Gettysburg Address, the Second Inaugural Address—along with less familiar letters and memoranda that chart Lincoln’s political career, his evolving stand against slavery, and his day-to-day conduct of the Civil War. This edition includes a revised introduction, updated notes on the text, a chronology of Lincoln’s life, and four new selections of his writing.
