Explore the words that shaped the course of history, wherever you are. Lincoln Speeches and Analysis, a DocNotes App, brings you the authoritative texts of the sixteenth president's most influential addresses with expert analysis by acclaimed historian Paul Finkelman, President William McKinley Distinguished Professor of Law and Public Policy at Albany Law School and Editor in Chief of the award-winning Milestone Documents in American History print reference series. Rediscover one of our nation's greatest leaders through his own words, with the aid of a leading Lincoln scholar. A must-have app for all history lovers, teachers, and students.

Finkelman's analysis illuminates President Lincoln through each of these key speeches:

-"House Divided" Speech (1858): "I do not expect the Union to be dissolvedI do not expect the house to fallbut I do expect it will cease to be divided." (Full text included)

-First Inaugural Address (1861): "The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched ... by the better angels of our nature." (Full text included)

-Gettysburg Address (1863): "That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth." (Full text included)

-Second Inaugural Address (1865): "With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation's wounds." (Full text included)

All DocNotes apps are adapted from the Milestone Documents print reference series, whose combination of primary sources and expert analysis has earned high critical acclaim:

“The accompanying text is clear and intelligent, making the documents themselves appear more accessible and alive to casual readers and still useful for the more serious student of history.”
