Like many, I grew up knowing the Gettysburg Address was important, but I never really knew the story behind it, that there was more to the address than I had been taught. Borritt provides background and history to the Address that led to its creation and then sets the stage for the importance it has in today's world. A great read for the casual Civil War buff wanting just a little more to his history.
