Format: Hardcover
"A Perfect Tribute" has no doubt fallen by the wayside among children's books, but should certainly be reevaluated for its historical and artistic merit. It is a fictionalized account from the perspective of Abraham Lincoln of the deliverance of the Gettysburg Address, and the events which followed. The author is clearly a Lincoln enthusiast, as most people were in the early 1900's (and still are today), but beyond Andrews' glorifying portrait of the nation's best beloved President, the touching story incorporates our favorite memories of Lincoln and his personal qualities, as well. The story of Lincoln attending the deathbed of a veteran of the battle of Gettysburg stirs the heart, and correctly portrays Lincoln to young readers: a man who loved peace and Union above punishing the rebel states. More books have been written about Lincoln than about any other American, but "The Perfect Tribute" stands out among them, as an excellent representative of the country's continued adoration of Lincoln.

Format: Paperback
I did not know, until today, that this was a real book on which the television movie I'd seen was based, a Hallmark Hall of Fame 1991 adaption with the most realistic actor portrayal of what one would expect Lincoln's delivery of the Gettysburg Address to have been. I had neither heard nor read it in it's entirety before; and viewing / hearing it here, I was moved to the marrow of my bones, much as I learned Lincoln's audience was that day too.

This book was written in the early 1900's, and we know how much better a job of it writers did back then.

If you can find the HH-of-F film version, watch it, if only to experience Jason Robards' delivery of the Gettysburg Address.

I did not know this book existed until I found a copy in an old house I have a Nov 1909 copy of this book..wow..
I looked it up to see what I could find on it and so my mission continues.
