"Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war.

    We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.

    It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth." From the Richmond Examiner "Kings are usually made to speak in the magniloquent language supposed to be suited to their elevated position. On the present occasion, Lincoln acted the clown." Write an essay of at least two to three paragraphs analyzing this newspaper remark from the Richmond Examiner. Use specific quotations from the Gettysburg Address to support or refute the newspaper’s claim.

    Basically what you'll be doing here is breaking it down and summarizing what is being said, while at the same time reading between the lines about what is being implied.

    So, like you said, I'm summarizing the article or newspaper and putting it in my own words as well as using some of it's examples located in the text to help me emphasize my summary?

    Yes, that's crucially what you would be doing. Analyzing something simply means you are picking it apart and finding out what exactly the speaker/author is trying to convey. Putting examples form the article is a very good idea, and it will always help strengthen an essay. If there is anything else you need help with or need an explanation, don't hesitate to ask, Im always available to help.
