The words Abraham Lincoln spoke at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery at Gettysburg comprise perhaps the most famous speech in history. Many books have been written about the Gettysburg Address and yet, as Lincoln scholar Gabor Boritt shows, there is much that we don't know about the speech. In The Gettysburg Gospel he tears away a century of myths, lies, and legends to give us a clear understanding of the greatest American's greatest speech.

In the aftermath of the bloodiest battle ever fought in North America, the little town of Gettysburg was overwhelmed. This was where Lincoln had to come to explain why the horror of war must continue. Boritt shows how Lincoln responded to the politics of the time, as well as how and when he wrote the various versions of his remarks. Few people initially recognized the importance of the speech, but over the years it would grow into American scripture, acquiring new and broader meanings.

Based on years of scholarship as well as a deep understanding of Lincoln and of Gettysburg itself, The Gettysburg Gospel is an indispensable book for anyone interested in the Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War, or American history

""If we consider the vast libraries of material that examine, explore, and reimagine the life, deeds, and words of Abraham Lincoln, it would be reasonable for us to assume that all that needs to be said, has been said. Gabor Boritt tosses that assumption out the window. This book is an unexpected surprise, meaningful, entertaining, and full of fresh and untrampled imagery. Gabor Boritt has given us something that many historians simply fail to do -- he has given us a terrific read.""

-- Jeff Shaara, author of Gods and Generals
