This was where Lincoln had to come to explain why the horror of war must continue.

Lincoln was not certain until the last moment whether he could come. But he knew the significance of the occasion and wrote his remarks with care ... A careful analysis of the Address and the public reaction to it form the center of this book.-Dust jacket.
