Lincoln: His Speeches and Writings By Roy Basler, Carl Sandburg, Roy P. Basler
2001 | 878 Pages | ISBN: 0306810751 | EPUB | 3 MB

This volume presents nearly 250 of Lincoln's most important speeches, state papers, and letters in their entirety. Here are not only the masterpieces—the Gettysburg Address, the Inaugural Addresses, the 1858 Republican Convention Speech, the Emancipation Proclamation—but hundreds of lesser-known gems. Alfred Kazin has written that Lincoln was "not just the greatest writer among our Presidents . . . but the most telling and unforgettable of all American 'public' writer-speakers," and it’s never been cleaner than in this comprehensive edition.
