The words of President Abraham Lincoln in the Gettysburg Address are as relevant and meaningful today as they were in 1863. In this handsomely illustrated book, Michael McCurdy's art extends the power and force of Lincoln's speech, imbuing it with an excitement and energy that will ignite the interest of readers of all ages. With a foreword by one of America's preeminent historians, Garry Wills, and an afterword by McCurdy about his great-grandfather who fought at Gettysburg, this bookis at once personal and universal.
