Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address Saturday, March 4 1865 Abe Lincoln gave one of the most famous inaugural speeches of all time. Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address was the speech in which Lincoln read as he was being sworn into his second term. He perfectly summed up his last term in a casual way and gave people closure about the losses and sacrifices made in the war. When Lincoln gave his second inaugural address, he presented it in a very solemn and serious way. As stated in the video, Abraham Lincoln’s Second Inaugural David Blight states: “This is not a speech where he is trying to make the American people feel good...” Which from my understanding sound like he is just giving a short recap of his last term and explaining his choices

In my elementary school in West Texas, we performed songs on stage about America sometime around 9-11. My music teacher started this idea as a way for our school and town to honor those who died during the terrorist attacks. Most of the songs revolved around the states and their capitals or were songs like God Bless America. At the end of the last song though we would sit down and watch a slide show played to Alan Jackson’s (Where were you).
