To my mind this is what America is all about, fighting for the rights of mankind. It stands, not only as a reminder of a brutal civil war that cost so so many lives, but of why it was fought and is as relevant today as it ever was. We are reminded that rich or poor we should all enjoy the freedom to live our lives to their full potential. Many say this battle was the turning point in the war and it had been a close run thing. I would recommend this product not just for its historical value but for its content as one of the greatest speeches of any president or leader of a country.
In recent history I think the nearest speech we have in Britain to compare, is Winston Churchill's epic: we'll fight them on the beeches, speech, at the start of World War Two.
President Lincoln's final lines: government of the people, by the people, for the people...is a fitting memorial to all those lost lives.
Awesome and inspiring!
