Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 157310311X, Paperback)

Two years after Lincoln's death, Congress created a Lincoln Memorial Association to create a lasting tribute to the 16th President. It took, however, more than 50 years for that tribute to be built.

This book examines not only the rather lengthy story of Lincoln's memorial, but also the man and his presidency. Always first or second on historians' lists of Greatest U.S. Presidents, Lincoln is an admirable study. From his poor, frontier childhood; to becoming the proud and powerful man who led a nation through a terrible war, wrote two of the most famous speeches in U.S. history and the Emancipation Proclamation-there is much to be learned.

The Lincoln Memorial, in addition to being one of the most-recognized U.S. historical monuments, has itself made history. Students will learn about Marian Anderson's famous 1939 performance (after the internationally famous contralto was denied access to Constitution Hall) and about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s famous "I Have a Dream" keynote speech during the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Original documents, time lines, question-and-answer activities as well as materials that relate past history to present day reinforce key terms and concepts, produce context and explore relevance. Multiple intelligence activities, Internet research ideas and an answer key complete this vital resource.
