Need help on a question."On the occasion corresponding to this four years ago all thoughts were anxiously directed to an impending civil war. All dreaded it, all sought to avert it. While the inaugural address was being delivered from this place, devoted altogether to saving the Union without war, insurgent agents were in the city seeking to destroy it without war-seeking to dissolve the Union and divide effects by negotiation. Both parties deprecated war, but one of them would make war rather than let the nation survive, and the other would accept war rather than let it perish, and the war ca

    "Fondly do we hope, fervently do we pray, that this mighty scourge of war may speedily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsman's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said "the judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether." What is the purpose of this passage from President Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address? Question 2 options: 1) to argue that the impact of the war has not yet matched the impact of slavery 2) to show that God will judge everyone who participates in the war 3) to explain that the war will last two hundred fifty years 4) to illustrate that the war has already lasted three thousand years

    4, I believe. I would say one but Lincoln clearly compares war and slavery by "each slash paid by one of the sword". So not 1; 2, no, he believes God has brought the war for a change, and not 3 because it lasted 250 years, and is not going to last that long.

    "AT this second appearing to take the oath of the Presidential office there is less occasion for an extended address than there was at the first. Then a statement somewhat in detail of a course to be pursued seemed fitting and proper. Now, at the expiration of four years, during which public declarations have been constantly called forth on every point and phase of the great contest which still absorbs the attention and engrosses the energies of the nation, little that is new could be presented. The progress of our arms, upon which all else chiefly depends, is as well known to the public as to myself, and it is, I trust, reasonably satisfactory and encouraging to all. With high hope for the future, no prediction in regard to it is ventured." Which rhetorical element is included in this passage from President Lincoln's Second Inaugural Address? (5 points) Question 3 options: 1) ethos 2) theme 3) thesis 4) logos @LunyMoony and thank you for the other one i really appreciate it
