About this event
Description: 
Public speaking was an essential part of Abraham Lincoln’s political career. His debates with Stephen Douglas made him a national figure. His speeches as president — especially the Gettysburg Address and the Second Inaugural Address — helped shape Americans’ understanding of their country and chart a path toward reconciliation after the Civil War. Whether using humor, lawyer-like reason, or a Biblically-inspired prose that could verge on poetry, he was the nation’s most eloquent president.
