History differs from facts by addressing the who, what, when, where, why, and how of the past. Using 12 guided questions, these titles in the Examining Primary Sources series introduce historical topics related to primary source documents. In double-page spreads, the questions and accompanying answers cover such subjects as the primary source content, influential events, key writers, the intended audience, and the public reaction of the time. Gettysburg Address describes the events during the dedication of the Gettysburg National Cemetery, in 1863, and how Lincoln's speech, though only a short portion of that day, became the defining tribute. Enhanced with period photos, reproductions, sidebars, and a "fact sheet," the volumes conclude with the impact and lasting effects of these primary sources today. This series fills in gaps from traditional texts, making it a great early research resource.
