The Gettysburg Address
Your teen will want answers to all his questions about why America found itself at war with itself and in The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaptation, he will begin to grasp the deep-seated conflict between limited government and a robust government. He will also learn how Americans allowed slavery to take hold, then found it practically impossible to abandon it.
The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaptation scrutinizes each portion of the Address to reexamine the entire Civil War and its resulting consequences.
Drawing on fascinating first-hand accounts of Americans and using the details of individual families, soldiers, leaders, and slaves, The Gettysburg Address shows us the events through the eyes of those who lived through the war. Intelligently written and lavishly illustrated, The Gettysburg Address is both entertaining and illuminating.
Note: There is an instance of what we consider inappropriate language on page 7. Nothing that your older child will not have heard before; it can easily be rectified with a touch of white-out.
