Write a RHETORICAL analysis of Abraham Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address.”
The occasion of Lincoln’s speech was in the immediate aftermath of the Battle of Gettysburg during the height of the American Civil War, July 2, 3, 4, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had been issued on January 1, 1863, freeing all slaves and granting those men/women all of the rights granted to American citizens. The Battle of Gettysburg was brutal and horrific, but is often noted as the turning point in the American Civil War.
I’m asking you to look at this speech and write a short rhetorical analysis as I believe we’re currently living through another form of Civil War in America. In the midst of the Covid-19 epidemic, we find our nation struggling anew with issues like individual rights, economic freedom, and race. This epidemic has been politicized and there have been many moments when, like the American Civil War, brothers and sisters have found themselves in battle against each other, engaging in a fight that seems unnecessary (at least to myself) at a time when the very foundation of the great American Experiment of democracy is being challenged. You may use research for this analysis if you like. However, your work should be primarily your own. You’re living in unprecedented times, and your reaction to all of the issues occurring in the present are fair game for this assignment.
Lincoln’s speech is short and is an attempt to bind the nation’s wounds in the midst of a bitter conflict that is tearing the very soul of the nation apart at that moment. Does that situation sound familiar? Your analysis should be about 600-800 words (three to four double-spaced typed pages). You should feel free to draw connections to our present circumstances in America.
