Excerpt from Abraham Lincoln: America Lingk'un, A. D., 1809-1865 In 1831 he took another flatboat to New Orleans, for Denton Offutt; and on his return attended to the latter's store in New Salem, Menard county, where he employed his abundant leisure in studying surveying and the principles of law. Next year came the Black Hawk Indian war. Lincoln at once enlisted, and was made captain, but served in that capacity only about a month, when his company was mustered out of service. He immediately joined another company, however, as private; and served without any notable experiences, until finally mustered out a few weeks later, 1832, June 16. Returning home, he entered on a late and hasty canvass for the Legislature, announcing his platform thus: "I presume you all known who I am; I am humble Abraham Lincoln. I have been solicited by my many friends to become a candidate for the Legislature. My politics are short and sweet, like the old woman's dance. I am in favor of a national bank; I am in favor of internal improvements, and a high protective tariff. These are my sentiments and political principles. If elected, I shall be thankful; if not, it will be all the same." He was defeated, though his own neighborhood voted for him almost unanimously. Thereupon he entered into partnership with another man in the grocery and dry goods business in New Salem. His partner was worthless, and the firm failed, Lincoln being left with the indebtedness of the concern resting upon him. By frugality and hard work he paid it off entirely in a few years. He next took to studying law, and then to surveying. In 1833 he was appointed postmaster of New Salem, with a beggarly salary but plenty of time for reading and study. He held the office for three years, being at the same time also deputy for the county surveyor. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Abraham Lincoln Campfire

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Born to illiterate parents in the untamed frontiers of America and raised with virtually no formal education, Abraham Lincoln often questioned his future. But he took comfort in knowing that he at least had the freedom to choose his own path in life. Freedom, he believed, was a precious thing, and he was certain that no man had a right to enslave another. Unfortunately, not everyone in America shared that belief. In the mid-19th century, America was a nation with more than four million slaves; it was a nation that had lost its moral compass; a nation desperate for a leader to step forward. That leader was Abraham Lincoln. Thrust into the national spotlight when his conscience would not let him turn away from injustice, Abraham Lincoln took control of a shattered nation at the cusp of a civil war. And he helped ensure that the idea of freedom for all did not perish from the earth.

Written by two private secretaries to the president and first published in 1890, this astonishingly in-depth work is still praised today for its clear, easy-to-read style and vitality. This new replica edition features all the original illustrations. Volume Eight covers: . conspiracies in the North . habeas corpus . Chickamauga . Chattanooga . Burnside in Tennessee . the Gettysburg address . foreign relations in 1863 . Grant general-in-chief . Spotsylvania . and much more. American journalist and statesman JOHN MILTON HAY (1838-1905) was only 22 when he became a private secretary to Lincoln. A former member of the Providence literary circle when he attended Brown University in the late 1850s, he may have been the real author of Lincoln's famous "Letter to Mrs. Bixby." After Lincoln's death, Hay later served as editor of the *New York Tribune* and as U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom under President William McKinley. American author JOHN GEORGE NICOLAY (1832-1901) was born in Germany and emigrated to the U.S. as a child. Before serving as Lincoln's private secretary, he worked as a newspaper editor and later as assistant to the secretary of state of Illinois. He also wrote *Campaigns of the Civil War* (1881).

Abraham Lincoln's "Gettysburg Address": The Rhetoric of American Civil Religion GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject Rhetoric / Elocution / Oratory, printed single-sided, grade: 1,3, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, course: Allgemeine Rhetorik, language: English, abstract: Abraham Lincoln s Gettysburg Address has played a powerful role in shaping American public discourse over the centuries. It has become one of the central documents in the evolution of American civil religion imbued with religious and biblical language and imagery, backed by the ethos of its orator, its rhetoric sanctifies the founding documents and itself becomes part of the canon of holy writ of American civil religion.This is all the more remarkable considering the fact that Lincoln was originally only supposed to deliver a few appropriate remarks at the dedication of the Gettysburg battlefield as a cemetery for the fallen soldiers. The main speaker, Edward Everett, had already given a long speech when Lincoln s turn came. The situation which thus presented itself to the orator posed a considerable challenge, as the audience was already weary. It is therefore all the more fascinating to see how Lincoln succeeded in his short, dense speech which did not even give the photographer sufficient time to take his picture in molding American identity by fusing organic union with transcendent purpose by utilizing the religious symbolism of the Christian tradition (White 97).This paper will examine how the Gettysburg Address came to be one of the central documents of American civil religion, which had a significant influence on all future public discourse.First, it will provide a brief discussion of Abraham Lincoln as an orator. This aspect is important insofar as it is necessary to determine what role his personal ethos played in the Gettysburg Address.The main part will offer a close reading of the Gettysburg Address, focusing on an in-depth analysis of the rhetorical strategies and stylistic devices Lincoln employs. This part is concerned especially with the question of how these strategies contribute to the enduring significance of the Gettysburg Address as a central document of American civil religion.

Excerpt from Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln was born in Kentucky. When Abraham's father was a little boy, his father took him out there to live. That was a long time ago. Kentucky was then only a great wilderness. There were Indians everywhere. There were dense forests, and there were bears and foxes and wolves in these forests. There was no city of Louisville then. No one dreamed there ever would be such a city. But Abraham Lincoln's grandfather found a good place on one side of Licking Creek, and he built a log cabin there in the woods.

Six Months at the White House with Abraham Lincoln Digital Scanning,US

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Six Months at the White House was written by Francis Bicknell Carpenter after the unexpected popularity of a series of articles published in the New York Independence relating to Abraham Lincoln following his assassination. Carpenter, a Civil War portrait painter, was originally hired to capture President Lincoln in the picture. "First Reading of the Emancipation Proclamation before the Cabinet." During the six months occupied in painting this picture, Carpenter enjoyed constant interaction with the President, as well as the various members of his Cabinet. Lincoln was enthusiastic in helping Carpenter, even letting him use the state dining room as his studio.The incidents given were not in any sense isolated exception to the daily routine of Mr. Lincoln's life. The aim of the author was to portray the man as he was revealed to him, without any attempt at idealization. Carpenter has woven into the book personal reminiscences from various individuals, published and unpublished, which bear intrinsic evidence of the genuineness of the great man, Abraham Lincoln.Written in a spirit of enthusiasm and affection, Six Months at the White House is a simple, matter-of-fact record of daily experience and observation, fragmentary but true, in all essential particulars of life in the White House as observed by Carpenter from February to August, 1864.

Abraham Geiger and the Jewish Jesus University of Chicago Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Was Jesus the founder of Christianity of a teacher of Judaism? When he argued the latter based on the New Testament, Abraham Geiger ignited an intense debate that began in 19th-century Germany but continues in the late-20th century. Geiger was a pioneer of Reform Judaism and a founder of Jewish studies and developed a Jewish version of Christian origins. He contended that Jesus was a member of the pharisees, a progressive and liberalizing group within 1st-century Judaism, and that he taught nothing new or original. This argumant enraged German Protestant theologians, some of whom produced a tragic counterargument based upon racial theory. In this study Susannah Heschel traces the genesis of Geiger's argument and examines the reaction to it within Christian theology. She concludes that Geiger initiated an intellectual revolt by the colonized against the colonizer, an attempt not to assimilate into Christianity by adopting Jesus as a Jew, but to overthrow Christian intellectual hegemony by claiming that Christianity - and all of Western civilization - was the product of Judaism.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In a world where there is all too much hostility, latent or manifest, between Christians and Muslims, Muslims and Jews, Christians and Jews, and an increase in fundamentalism and extremism, this book sets out to present a new vision for peace between the religions. It centres on Abraham, a figure who has an important place in Jewish, Christian and Muslim tradition, and thus forms a common point of reference. First Karl-Josef Kuschel analyses the role Abraham has been made to play in each of the three great religions in connection with politics, ideals, laws: the non-Jew who was made a Jew, then a Christian and then the model Muslim. Since he is the possession of all these religions, a future relationship between them could be an 'Abrahamic ecumenism'. The second part of the book then sets out the presuppositions for such an ecumenism; with a universalistic perspective, and the third section outlines the contribution that this ecumenism could make in the world of our day. In his two previous books, Born Before All Time and Laughter, Karl-Josef Kuschel has shown a rare gift for providing a refreshing, lucid and highly readable approach to important subjects. This new work is no exception and has much to say to Jews, Christians and Muslims alike. Karl-Josef Kuschel teaches ecumenical theology and theological aesthetics in the University of Tubingen.
