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 Lincoln’s famous speech, the Gettysburg Address, was originally published by Albert Whitman 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.

Finding ways to expose children to important speeches is always tricky. In this large picture book reprint, originally from 1947, now fresh for 2013 children of this generation can pour over the illustrated pages and truly get an education. There is a two-page spread with a phrase on each page. The Afterword is full of fascinating information followed by a legend with miniature images and description of the images with interpretations. This is gorgeous and able to provide hours of entertainment and interest.
