Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

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 that nation might live.

It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract.

The world will little note nor long remember what we say here,

but it can never forget what they did here.

It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced.

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—

that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—

that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—

… with malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow and his orphan—to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and a lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations. —from LINCOLN’S SECOND INAUGURAL ADDRESS

and that this government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

© 2010 Jack E. Levin

Format: Hardcover
Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address Illustrated does what most history books (even great treatises) never manage to do - It captures the power and poignancy of the moment Abraham Lincoln rose to deliver what is one of the world's greatest statements on democratic governance and the human character.

Through Lincoln's own words and telling contemporary photographs, Jack Levin captures the raw emotion and historically charged atmosphere of an era when America was literally tearing itself apart. He goes beyond the commonplace telling of how Lincoln's address came about and what it came to mean, and gives us the sensory and emotional experience of an eye witness to momentous history in the making.

This book should be a cornerstone in every American's education about the times and events that have made us the nation we are today. It is also a telling reminder of what each generation must fight to preserve in order to give to future generations the legacy of American exceptionalism.

I can't recommend this book highly enough.

I cannot do this book justice with just some words on a screen... I am 27 years old and it takes alot for me to get a lump in my throat, but this book has done it as I sit here at work paging through this treasure. Over my life, I have read the words that Lincoln spoke at Gettysburg, but none have so deeply penetrated the depths of my soul as the format of this book. With each turn of the page comes another powerful line accompanied by another powerful image that reminds us that the Civil War was not some fable that took place in Ancient History. No. Jack E. Levin shows us that America, OUR America, OUR country, is not merely a geographical "place" on the globe, but rather an idea, a mindset, a unique human experience and that our history is one of uniquely AMERICAN character. This book should be required reading in ALL public schools. This book is not someone's subjective point-of-view passed off as fact. Quite the contrary. 'Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address Illustrated' is the words of one divinely-inspired President, accompanied by the incredibly detailed photographs of past Americans who carried out and who died for the belief in humanity's ONLY opportunity to live as God intended, freely. With this book, Mr. Jack E. Levin has created his second masterpiece - his first being the American Hero and Patriot, Mark R. Levin.

An outstanding tribute to a seminal event. Jack Levin's selection of hauting photos coupled with the immortal words of Lincoln should be required in all classrooms. Although I'm ashamed to admit it, I hadn't read the entire Gettysburg Address since high school. This book renewed my interest in the Civil War.

Also featured is a moving prologue by Mark Levin.

It is abundantly clear to me that the Levin Family has embraced liberty, freedom, and patriotism. Would that we all do this in our respective families!

This illustrated version of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address is remarkable in that it causes the reader to pause and reflect on Lincoln's words. Indeed, a reader who cherishes this nation will do so without much thought as to why, while a reader who does not value that which has been sacrificed will merely glance or gawk at the carefully selected pictures and art, and then proceed to pass judgment based on their prejudice of the preface's author.

The images and drawings bring Lincoln's words to life, and in equal measure remind us of what horrors await if our nation is torn asunder, and separated from our Constitution. Those that would have us adopt a new path based on some foreign model will utterly miss the poignant reminder that discarding the wisdom of our founders can only have one horrific outcome.

This is an excellent supplemental book for any family with children studying the Civil War or Lincoln. Those that enjoy Mark Levin's radio program will enjoy the window into his upbringing and the story of his father (and this book's creator), Jack Levin. Thank you both for your time and dedication to our great country! And a special thank you to Jack Levin for illustrating this important moment of history that staves off the erosive qualities of time.

What I really enjoy about this book is its simplicity. It's something that people of all ages can enjoy, from the very young to the very old. My grandson, aged 9 perused it quietly for over an hour and peppered me with questions afterward. (Like "What side was Texas on"?) I plan to give a copy to my dad for Father's day and I feel quite sure he'll enjoy it as well. It's not a book that will take more than an hour to read from front to back, but it's a book that you will want to savor slowly, and not stampede through. Each page has a few words from Lincoln's address, along with a reproduction of a Civil War era photo or painting. Lincoln made the short speech at an important time in our history and the book transports you to that period in time for a short period. All of the horror of war and the magnitude of the struggle come across in just a few pages. Very enjoyable and a great gift idea for kids, dads, moms...war nuts, anyone!
