Today the former is universally regarded as one of the most famous speeches in American history; the latter is largely forgotten. Why is this short speech so memorable? First, it is important to remember the context. America was in the midst of a bloody civil war.
It was on that Thursday afternoon that President Lincoln gave one of the most famous speeches of all time. I think that whenever he gave a speech or went anywhere his rhetorical value would automatically be higher than a less height-gifted man.
In modern society a good presentation. The ability to speak fluently and motivationally while knowingor atleast pretending to know, what you are talking about about is a huge part of your ethos and credibility in giving a speech.
Lincoln I think did this stupendously. He was able to inspire and convince a nation of a cause in less words than you can find on a cereal box. I believe that this is accomplished by the pathos in which he spoke of the cause.
I am sure that his emotions were high standing before that great battleground and looking out across the field. The shortness of the speech is considered by some that it was so important.
It showed that there was not much he could say about what went down during that battle. The guy previous talked for two plus hours while Lincoln spent mere minutes on his speech. I do not think that it would have the same affect if his speech took hours as well.
As said before, the civil war was one of the most violent and bloody of all time. It depleted the countries recourses, ended hundreds of thousands of lives, and left most of the country destitute and hopeless.
I think that in his speech, Lincoln was able to inspire and lift up, making extremely moving and full of remembrance. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled, here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract.
The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here, but can never forget what they did here. I think that through President Lincolns presentation, his physical height of persuasion, and the point at which the speech was given is the reason that it will be remembered for many years to come.The Gettysburg Address: An Analysis On 19 November, we commemorate the anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address in In one of the first posts on this blog, I compared Lincoln’s two-minute address with the two-hour oration by Edward Everett on the same occasion.
