1st printing. By C.M. Butzer. Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address is familiar to all Amerians. But never has his most famous speech, his 271 indelible words, been presented in such a visual and accessible format. Graphic artist and Civil War aficionado C.M. Butzer deftly uses a detailed, comic-book style to depict the Battle of Gettysburg, the national movement to create a memorial there, and the quiet day in November 1863 when Lincoln delivered his galvanizing speech. Butzer uses only primary sources for the text, drawing from first-person letters and diaries, speeches, and Lincoln's own writing to illuminate this series of historical events. The address itself plays out on over eighteen pages, with every phrase given a visual interpretation that will resonate with young readers. Softcover, 7-iin. x 9-in., 80 pages, B&W (with Blue). Cover price $9.99.
