From Abraham Lincoln's First Inaugural Address in 1861 to his brief remarks on the Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, battlefield in 1863 to his Second Inaugural Address given in 1865, America's 16th president, in three key speeches, defined the course of the nation's entry into, through, and out of the Civil War. These three speeches tell the story of a nation's stubborn reluctance to face peacefully the challenge of slavery, disunion, and war among the states. They implore the nation to consider the great losses surely to happen should war come; they mirror the sadness of the tragedy of that war at its height; and they hold out hope and promise for a nation soon to be rejoined at the conclusion of the conflict. Timeless phrases emerged from each address: "the better angels of our nature"; "of the people, by the people, for the people"; and "to care for him who shall have borne the battle".
In The Lincoln Trio, every word Lincoln spoke during his three key addresses is carefully recorded to capture the tone and urgency of Lincoln's remarks, with emphasis on important phrases and specific words, based on the historical records.
