The power of words has rarely been given a more compelling demonstration than in the Gettysburg Address Lincoln was asked to memorialize the gruesome battle Instead he gave the whole nation a new birth of freedom by tracing its first birth to the Declaration of Independence which called all men equal rather than to the Constitution which tolerated slavery In the space of a mere words Lincoln brought to bear the rhetoric of the Greek Revival the categories of Transcendentalism and the imagery of the rural cemetery movement His entire life and previous training his deep political experience went into this his revolutionary masterpiece As Michelangelo s Sistine Chapel has been restored to its bold colors and forgotten details Garry Wills restores the Gettysburg Address Lincoln at Gettysburg combines the same extraordinary quality of observation that defines Wills s previous best selling portraits of modern presidents such as Reagan s America and Nixon Agonistes with the iconoclastic scholarship of his studies of our founding documents such as Inventing America By examining both the Address and Lincoln in their historical moment and cultural frame Wills breathes new life into words we thought we knew and reveals much about a President so mythologized but often misunderstood Wills shows how Lincoln came to change the world to effect an intellectual revolution how his words had to and did complete the work of the guns The Civil War is to most Americans what Lincoln wanted it to mean Now Garry Wills explains how Lincoln wove a spell that has not yet been broken Lincoln at Gettysburg: The Words That Remade America books by Garry Wills
