Ida B. Wells-Barnett (1862—1931) THE AWFUL SLAUGHTER May 8, 1909 Born to slaves, Ida B.

Four years prior to his second Inaugural Address, President Lincoln had given a speech about war, “an impending civil war.” Now, after four years of such conflict, the President is issuing a speech of reconciliation, trying to convince his people to come back together with their Southern brethren, and try and heal the grievously wounded nation. A gifted rhetorician, the President used three primary literary tool s to make his point: parallel structure to illustrate similarities between Northerner and Southerner, allusions to the Bible to highlight the Christian values so important to both, and personification to paint the war as an evil enemy, and the nation as a wounded friend. In the second paragraph, Lincoln concludes with the parallel statements “one… would make war rather than let the nation survive… the other would accept war rather than let it parish, and the war came.”
Oakes’ masterful command of the broad literature of slavery, race, and the Civil War era allows him to trace the parallel journeys of two iconic American leaders. Oakes tells an absorbing and didactic story, shifting between accounts of Lincoln and Douglas and ending with their meetings in the White House. By portraying Douglas as a character of equal significance as Lincoln, Oakes not only provides insight into Douglas’s life but also enriches the study of Lincoln. The convergence of Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglas during the nation’s greatest crisis reveals “what can happen when progressive reformers and savvy politicians make common cause”

Abraham Lincoln was one of America’s greatest presidents .Knowed to the world as the “Great emancipator”, Abraham Lincoln left a legacy behind. As the 16th president Lincoln managed to save the nation, he took the first step towards abolishing slavery, allowed blacks to join the military, gave his world famous Gettysburg speech, and many more. To many people Abraham Lincoln was a hero, to others he was a man with a questionable motive. Through the eyes of Hofstader, Abraham Lincoln was a man who was inconsistent with his beliefs not only as a president but a politician as well. In the first few paragraphs, Hofstadter illustrates Lincoln as being a self made politician that used his “unfortunate upbringings” to further advance his political career.

Concentrating on the issue of slavery, the speech describes how the new Republican President would violate the constitutional right to property that extended to protect slaveholders. Revising the principle that forms the basis for chattel slavery, Toombs exclaims that Southerners “stand without a shield, with bare bosoms presented to our enemies.” (57) This allusion to sectionalism presents the North as enemies of Southern tradition, describing in turn how unprepared the South is for the Republican future. Anxious towards this perceived northern aggression, Southerners present the abolitionist policies of the Republican Party to be unconstitutional and coercive.

Gettysburg (1993) eventually became difficult to sit through. The movie started off strong and fell short as the production dragged on for a duration of four-and-one-quarter hours, following a story that spans a full three days, and aligning with the plot line of the book The Killer Angels, by Michael Shaara. From the beginning, Gettysburg makes a point to align itself with factual historical figures, but misrepresents or ignores some important aspects of the real happenings from which it claims to draw source. The film spans three days revolving around The Battle of Gettysburg: focusing on the viewpoints from John Buford (Sam Elliot), Joshua Chamberlain (Jeff Daniels), and James Longstreet (Tom Berenger).
While both Abraham Lincoln’s “House Divided” speech and George Washington’s Farewell Address talks about the government and people uniting, Lincoln’s speech speaks more about slavery and Washington’s address advised warnings about the liberties necessary for the country/nation to survive. On June 16, 1858, Abraham Lincoln gave the speech at the State Republican to more than 1,000 delegates.
