Although much has been written about Abraham Lincoln, there has been little rhetorical analysis of how he communicated with his public. By studying Lincoln's rhetoric closely, we can gain real insights into Lincoln as an orator, debater, jester, lawyer, statesman, leader, and president. This critical appraisal of his public speaking is linked to transcripts of some major speeches and to a chronology, bibliography, and an index.
