More on The Gettysburg Address

Allen Guelzo, "Lincoln's Sound Bite"

Heather Cox Richardson at the blog of the Historical Society

Eric Foner on NPR

Tommy Kidd at The Anxious Bench

Huge forum at The New Republic.  Sean Wilentz has a long piece and Michael Kazin, Henry Louis Gates Jr. and others respond.  (repost from 2009).

Ken Burns wants us to "Learn the Address."

The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaptation

Stephen Prothero at Religion & Politics

The Atlantic:  "The Gettysburg Address as a Powerpoint"
