Newspaper Reviews on the Gettysburg Address
Patriot and Union Newspaper review:
"We pass over the silly remarks of the President; ... the veil of oblivion shall be dropped over them and ... they shall no more be repeated or thought of."
Was the Patriot and Union correct in its prediction about the Gettysburg Address? Why or why not? Go back and review the Gettysburg Address. What did Lincoln have to say about his words? Was he correct in his own prediction? Why or why?
This is what I THINK
- MY ANS: - No, this prediction is not true, the Patriot and Union believed that speach was silly and will be forgotten. However, Lincoln believed words mean nothing and need to be done with actions because people will forget what we say but, not what we do. "The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here." No, he was also incorrect because it is a Historical Speech.
I WANT YOUR INPUT PLEASE !
