Review: Abraham Lincoln: Great Speeches ed. by Stanley Appelbaum (Dover Thrift Edition)

Synopsis: A collection of the great speeches by Abraham Lincoln, including both his inaugural addresses and his most famous Gettysburg Speech

Review: This is a fine collection of Lincoln's speeches, spanning his time in Illinois politics and in Washington. Appelbaum did a good drop arranging and collecting these words. As for the speeches, they are illuminating. Lincoln, sometimes portrayed as a passive President, was fervent and hard-hitting when it came to his words. I recommend this small collection as a starting point for anyone wishing to learn more about this President's politics.
