There are two popular books about the Gettysburg Address: "Lincoln at Gettysburg" by Garry Wills, and this one. They are different and complementary: the former provides the philosophical underpinnings of the Address, and the latter gives an excellent, vivid overview of the historical forces that led to the Civil War. Both books reward multiple readings because of the depth they bring to one of the greatest speeches ever. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061969761, Paperback)

The Gettysburg Address: A Graphic Adaptation is a full-color illustrated look at Abraham Lincoln’s most famous speech, the bloody battle of the Civil War that prompted it, and how they led to a defining point in the history of America.
 
Most of us can recall “Four score and seven years ago,” but much of what we know about Abraham Lincoln’s oration has been forgotten after high school.
 
Using Lincoln’s words as a keystone, and drawing from first-person accounts, The Gettysburg Address shows us the events through the eyes of those who lived through the events of the War, from soldiers to slaves.
 
Writer Jonathan Hennessey and illustrator Aaron McConnell illuminate history with vibrant, detailed graphics and captions that deliver a fresh understanding of this vital speech.

A graphic adaptation of the Gettysburg Address explains the events of the War, drawing on first-hand accounts from soldiers, slaves, and key figures and providing an understanding of the speech that marked America's new path.
