    The Lincoln-Douglas Debates made history and changed its course through seven legendary match-ups between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas during the 1858 Illinois senatorial race. Although he lost the election, Lincoln's gift for oratory and his anti-slavery stance made him a nationally known figure, and led to his election to the presidency in 1860. Never before presented in audio, these debates and great statesmen are brought to life by narrators Richard Dreyfuss and David Strathairn.

    Lincoln's first Inaugural Address was delivered on March 4th, 1861, as the North and South were sliding toward separation and Civil War. In it, Lincoln warns the nation of the consequences of the secession of the Southern States and, in an effort to avert secession, claims that his administration plans no changes regarding slavery. His second Inaugural Address, given just weeks before his assassination, was also delivered on March 4 but four years later, in 1865.

    Abraham Lincoln delivered his second inaugural address on March 4, 1865, during his second inauguration as president of the United States. At a time when victory over the secessionists in the American Civil War was within days and slavery was near an end, Lincoln spoke of sadness. A mere 703 words, Lincoln's speech did not offer the North a victory speech, nor did he excoriate the South for the sin of slavery. Instead, he called on the entire country's guilt for the bloody war and argued for reconciliation and unity.

    The Emancipation Proclamation was a presidential proclamation issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863, as a war measure during the American Civil War, directed to all of the areas in rebellion and all segments of the Executive branch (including the Army and Navy) of the United States. It proclaimed the freedom of slaves in the eleven states that were still in rebellion, excluding areas controlled by the Union and thus applying to 3 million of the 4 million slaves in the U.S. at the time.
