The power of words has rarely been given a more compelling demonstration than in the Gettysburg Address. By examining both the Address and Lincoln in their historical moment and cultural frame, Wills breathes new life into words we thought we knew and reveals much about a President so mythologized but often misunderstood. Includes an Index. "As close to a definitive exegesis of the Gettysburg Address as we have ever had or are likely to have for a long time to come." - George Fredrickson, Edgar E. Robinson Professor of U.S. History, Stanford University
