This video is a collection of Abraham Lincoln's most famous and not so famous speeches. Using archival photographs and drawings, we truly get transported to the time when Lincoln's unpretentious speaking style won over the masses. You will hear the Gettysburg Address, The Emancipation Proclamation, and much more in this video presentation. One of the most compelling and little known facts is the presentation of Lincoln's views on race that will shock most people. He details his own prejudice as he plays to the crowd in Southern Illinois.
