Gettysburg Address

Today is the 139th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, not only the shortest speech ever given, but arguably the best. Do yourself a favor: read it aloud and let the Anglo-Saxon rhythms reveal themselves to your ears.

Here is a good speech on Lincoln that Ken Masugi gave several years back. You also can listen to Mac Owens discuss the Gettysburg Address during one of our summer teacher institutes.
