On November 19th, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered one of the most famous speeches in American History. Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address was written for the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in Gettysburg, PA only four and a half months after the famous battle that would turn the tide of the Civil War. Before Gettysburg, the Union Army had suffered defeat after defeat at the hands of the Confederates, and victory seemed nearly out of reach. Â After more than a year of setbacks on the battlefield, the Union had finally achieved a decisive victory against the Confederacy at Gettysburg. The tide of the Civil War was beginning to turn in favor of the Union. With victory in sight, President Lincoln’s dedication speech reminded Americans that the Civil War was about more than emancipation–it was about preserving democracy itself. President Lincoln’s speech served as a rallying cry for the Union’s cause, and continues to inspire Americans today. But the Gettysburg Address would not have been possible without a victory on the battlefield. In Gettysburg: The Last Invasion, Professor Allen C. Guelzo examines the battle in exquisite detail. If you’re interested in learning more about the Gettysburg Address on its 152nd anniversary, this audiobook is the best place to begin.
Full disclosure: I love Drew Barrymore!Â Sheâ€™s been one of my favorite actresses ever since I first watched E.T. as a small child.Â And by â€śwatched,â€ť I mean that I completely balled my eyes out the entire time E.T. couldnâ€™t get home. My next Drew Barrymore cinematic experience occurred when I was 10 years old.Â I watched in fascination as Barrymore transformed into one of my favorite fairytale characters, Cinderella, in Ever After and actually showed the prince a thing or two about rescuing.Â That was followed by Never Been Kissed, Charlieâ€™s Angels, 50 First Dates, and a whole bunch of other amazing movies that I, unfortunately, donâ€™t have the time or space to list.
