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.

First, let me qualify this by stating that I am a huge fan of Mark Levin, his show, and KSFO radio. Just before Memorial Day I was listening to his show and he mentioned his dad's book. I was thinking I should buy the book for my 17 year old son, who somehow considers himself a socialist. Let him see what many thousands of others sacrificed for this country was my main reasoning. Shortly after the book arrived I decided to read it too. With all due respect to Mark Levin, who I think is one of the more brilliant conservative minds, I thought the book too juvenile for adults. Very large type words of the short Gettysburg address and some Matthew Brady photographs were pretty much it. For whatever reason, I thought the book would be a short study on the Battle of Gettysburg - what led up to it, the thoughts Lincoln may have had at the time, and the thoughts Lincoln had while writing and delivering his famous speech. What did others say or think afterwards? What was the Southern response to the speech? None of that was in this book. It was just a bit of Mr Levin's background and the large-type speech with a few Brady photographs - the end. I think I finished it in 5 minutes, and I'm a very slow reader. If I had to do it again, I think I would probably not buy this book and I give only an average rating.

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!

A very nice tribute to one of the greatest speeches of all time. The book vividly captures the spirit of the address, suffering of the divided country, and the enduring principles under which our nation was founded. I appreciate the work put into it and the careers of both Levins. I would have really liked a little more detailed summary of the battle than what is included, rather than an intimate preface and forward by the authors (which I appreciated too),(Seems like Mark described the battle in detail on the air, but I don't think that it's the one from the book), but it was very well done.
