White's compelling description of Lincoln's articulation of our nation's struggle and the suffering of all - North, South, soldier, slave - offers new insight into Lincoln's own hard won victory over doubt and his promise of authority and passion. Delivered only weeks before his assassination, the speech was the culmination of Lincoln's moral and rhetorical genius.

"Well researched and at times extraordinarily moving, White's small volume comes closer to finding the true spirit of Abraham Lincoln than many of the more celebrated biographies." (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))
"This excellent title is carefully and clearly read by Raymond Todd....Todd is respectful in his narration, using an appropriate tone throughout....His interpretation carries the reader along for a fascinating story about a very important and very short speech." (AudioFile)
