    Description

    The Battle of Gettysburg - the turning point of the American Civil War - would, in the words of one staff officer, stand "like Waterloo, conspicuous in the history of all ages." In this stirring production, adapted from the New York Times’ award-winning online journal and Audible audiobook Disunion, we revisit the meaning and importance of the battle that forever changed US history. Timed to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the battle which took place over several days starting July 1st, 1863, Why Gettysburg Mattered concludes with an inspiring performance of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.

    Historical Snapshot

    This was a very short download and was a freebie from Audible for the 4th of July. The intro was interesting, but I wish it had bit a bit longer and given more detail. I did enjoy listening to The Gettysburg Address, as this was the first time that I remember ever listening to the entire speech.

    Enjoyable preview for book of vignettes

    I read some of these essays when they ran in the NY Times, and appreciated getting this preview before buying the whole book. My teenage history-loving son enjoyed this preview, and it made us decide to get the whole book soon.

    Of course the whole significance of Gettysburg can't be covered in 14 minutes. But if you are looking for something episodic to listen to the car, or for short time before bed, as we are, this was a great length.

    The narrator was good and engaging as well.

    A Foundational Piece of US History

    But it gets one star because even true things once written for The New York Times become falsehoods.

    Worth the read

    I really thought this book was worth the read. I really enjoyed the way Gettysburg was explained why Gettysburg mattered so much. I loved actually hearing the Gettysburg Address.

    applications

    This short listen takes information we already have and applies it to the question Why Gettysburg Mattered. Very interesting. I was disappointed in the reading of Lincoln's beautiful Gettysburg Address but even so it was wonderful to hear in again. Thank you Audibles for this nice gift.

    great perspective

    A short snipit on the meaning of Gettysburg, reiforcing that it was the turning point in the Civil War. It showed that a democratic government, never before tried in the world, where the government was of the people, for the people, and by the people, could survive and thrive. Lincoln's Gettysburg Adresss sums it all up quite nicely.

    A different prospective

    A different prospective of the importance of the Battle of Gettysburg from a political standpoint rather than a military standpoint. A short review that ends with the reading of the Gettysburg Address will inspire all true Americans outlook on this world's greatest country.

    Great Insight into the Battle of Gettysburg

    I was never much of a history buff, but this essay explained things about the Battle of Gettysburg in a very clear way. I had heard of Gettysburg and Lincoln's famous speak, but this essay put it into good perspective.

    Worth a listen.

    A nice little synopsis and a reading of The Gettysburg Address in its' entirety. It stresses the importance of what a new concept democracy was at that time and the importance of preserving it. Worth a listen particularly for those who don't know much about Gettysburg's place in history.
