His greatness humbles and uplifts us,
This review is from: Abraham Lincoln: Great Speeches (Dover Thrift Editions) (Paperback)
There is something so moving , and even humbling about reading the words of Lincoln.
He is a politician of his time, and yet is above his time. He is a leader of the nation in the war to preserve the Union, yet he is compassionate and understanding of the defeated foe. He is a human being of great sympathy. And his words at Gettysburg are the most moving and profound statement made by an American about the essential meaning of the United States itself.
His greatness humbles and uplifts us.
This volume contains the essential words of the one who most Americans believe the greatest American of them all.
