About the Author:

Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865) was the sixteenth president of the United States best-known for helping to abolish slavery during the Civil War, and his tragic assassination just days after the war ended.

From School Library Journal:

K Up?McCurdy brings the important words of America's 16th president to life for a new generation of children bombarded by violent acts. With just a few lines of Lincoln's speech per double-page spread, a pace is established that allows the language to sink in and take hold. The wood engravings, depicting sweeping panoramas and crowds that continue beyond the page, provide the dark serious tone and high drama appropriate for the subject. (Interestingly, wood engravings were the choice of Leonard Everett Fisher in his interpretation of The Gettysburg Address [Watts, 1963; o.p.]). The scenes alternate between the action of battle and the quiet artifacts left behind, from a parade of slaves?"all men are created equal," to a processional of spirited laborers?"dedicated...to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced." These are interspersed with views of Lincoln addressing the crowd from various perspectives. A brief foreword by Gary Wills, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Lincoln at Gettysburg (S.&S., 1992) provides insight into the reason for the common burial ground. An afterword by the illustrator explains his family connection to the Civil War and, therefore, his inspiration. A valuable addition for every collection.?Wendy Lukehart, Dauphin County Library, Harrisburg, PA
