The president was in favor of the abolition of the slavery. This speech is a kind of exhortation to his nation. In it, Lincoln encourages his compatriots to continue with the war in order to save the union with the aim that the dead in this battle (about 43.000 in both sides) had some
It was a wakeup call to basically the entire country to come together and remember those who fought in the war. This also resembled the prize of freedom. In the document D it says,” But, in larger sense, we can not dedicate - we can not consecrate – we can not hallow – this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract.” Another example states,” That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, of the people, shall not perish from the earth.” Again, this was a wakeup call for the entire country. People didn’t really know what was happening in the war.
Johnson uses an emotional plea in his address to the American public in which he iterates that "No words are sad enough to express our sense of loss. No words are strong enough to express our determination to continue the forward thrust of America that he [President Kennedy] began." (Johnson) This being said, he uses the linguistics of "we" to show that they are unified in their grief.

"Today in this moment of new resolve, I would say to all my fellow Americans, let us continue. "

War Message Try putting yourself in someone else’s shoes that could risk the lives of millions. On April 2, in 1917, Woodrow Wilson delivered his speech, “War Message.” Woodrow Wilson delivered this speech four days before he made a life changing decision to enter into WWI. Woodrow Wilson urged for neutrality, but the United States was preparing for their involvement in the war by strengthening the Navy.

Woodrow Wilson’s speech, “War Message” was important because diplomatic relations with Germany were severed and war was about to break out.
He uses examples like “We cannot dedicate - we cannot consecrate - we cannot hallow this ground.” He uses these choice of words to get out to people that these men in the war of Gettysburg should not have died for no reason. That they died for this country, to help make it free
I think he was trying to give people closure about the war. I think his message was to tell people that you have to loose when you want to gain. Basically, Lincoln was trying to get the point across that you have to give some important things up if you want your country to progress as a nation. Lincoln’s speech is probably a contributing factor to the second industrial revolution. It inspired people to move on from the war and develop our country.
Forty-fourth president and acclaimed speaker Barack Obama, in his 2009 Inaugural Speech, addresses a nation in crisis and a changing world. Obama’s purpose is to not only to thank the nation that elected him but to lay out his game plan for the next four years. He adopts a hopeful tone in order to inspire and reassure the nation he is now in charge of. Obama begins by thanking the audience, including former President George W. Bush, and acknowledging the last eight years full of trials and tribulations. His first appeal to the audience is based around logos, “data and statistics”,(7) saying “Homes have been lost, jobs shed, businesses shuttered.
Doesn’t sound like a problem, riiiiiiiight? Wrong. It’s America, people, EVERYTHING is our business. Everything. So, we backed up the people who were claiming to be democratic (not to mention their military was hopeless, because American soldiers were actually thinking these people were joking when they said they had never seen a gunboat).
President Lincoln was looking to get reconstruction going even before the war was officially won. Lincoln thought that the beginning of reconstruction would help speed the war effort and bring it to a close sooner. Wade and Davis would have preferred to delay and wait for the war to end and for the South to be completely beaten with pre-secession institutions gone and needing to be rebuilt. There were a number of concepts that both Lincoln’s 10 percent plan and the Wade-Davis bill had in common. In 1863, with Union victory apparently on the horizon Lincoln “announces a policy for the reconstruction of recanting Confederates”, “Whereas it is now desired by some persons heretofore engaged in said rebellion to resume their
"Well, I tell you, sir, frankly my boys are beginning to wonder at the attitude of the high command toward my division... But I mean, the whole war could be damn well over soon... and my boys would have missed it. This book also sets up the importance of the battle for if the south were to win this battle It would be the battle that pulls the Confederates so much need allies. this book is great for our class because we have covered the revolutionary war for what the south is fighting their own one but at the same time we can see how important it is to finally take the offensive against an enemy in war as to pull some much need friend s to join your side. cause as we have seen this year we could not have beaten Britain without French support but that was the same for the Confederates the battle of Gettysburg was a repeat of the battle of Saratoga but end with the reverse affects leading to the South losing any hope of getting foreign allies to join in on the
After this, groups volunteered and the union became divided because four supported this cause and four remained with the union. This great decision made by Lincoln will forever remind the world that his important action would always be remembered, even as today’s history continues. So as a result of Lincoln’s strong decision, he lost the election in 1858 when he campaigned against Stephen Douglas for Senator; however, the result of the debate between the two helped Lincoln get re-nominated for president in
they decided to free this information out into the public ear, for all to know. This is also part of the reason why America went into this awful war. Just as America was going into the war, Russia was dropping out, that was good information for the U.S. because that was their chance to balance out the war for peace to be all around, just like Woodrow said in his speech earlier mentioned. Doing this America placed them in for the worlds control for the rest of that period. When WW1 ended the allies’ leaders wanted a treaty that would prevent another war to come upon them.
Abraham Lincoln was first wanting to show that 87 years ago our fathers created a new nation to form a nation that gives the offer that all men are equal. He says that this war is actually about which side can create an idea that everybody can live with happiness with respect and love. What he’s really saying is that the Civil War is testing our nation. That 's why we’re in the middle of this war. Lincoln states that we give a piece of this land to honor those who gave their lives in hope that the nation might live as a final resting place.
