Abstract

Dr. Ronald C. White, Jr. presents a close reading of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address at a public lecture presented in conjunction with the exhibit Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War at the Jereld R. Nicholson Library, Linfield College. The exhibit (organized by the National Constitution Center and the American Library Association Public Programs Office, and sponsored by the American Library Association, the Linfield College Department of History, and the Jereld R.
