The Gettysburg Address "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. Am I supposed to write my opinion or ?? ._. I'm really confused..

By the looks of it i believe so, "Use specific quotations from the Gettysburg Address to support or refute the newspaper's claim." what this is saying is you are either for or against the papers claim. so your either going to talk about why you are for the claim or why you are against it. Does that make a little more sense? :)

it basically is your opinion but you have to choose a side and use specific quotations from the text to back yourself up
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
Um, so If I'm against the article I'm gonna state why and use quotations from The Gettysburg Address to explain why?
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
Yes :)
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
Why didn't they just explain it like that! .__. haha Thanks @Hayhayz cx
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz

"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." What did he mean by this .___. I think I should probably know what he mean't Lmao :)
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
i honestly dont know so i searched it up and this is what i found: kings and people of high stature are expected to give speeches in very grand language, using fancy words. People believe that this fancy language suits the respect we give to these great people. However, Mr. Lincoln spoke in simple language and thus did not impress the writer. The writer thinks that Mr. Lincoln betrayed his social position by using plain language.

@Hayhayz this is what I have so far ._. I disagree with the Article because, Abraham Lincoln still told us the importance of the Gettysburg Address. The Richmond Examiner wanted Lincoln to speak in magniloquent but, if Lincoln were to speak in a "magniloquent" manner, then his audience might have gotten lost and spent their time deciphering what Lincoln was saying rather than paying attention to what he was talking about in his speech, which was the whole point. Also, he would have probably sounded too wordy and lengthy, which also might take away from the meaning of his speech and the interest of his audience. "...We are met on a great battlefield of that war. ... 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." It was easy to understand in my point of view and I am certainly pleased with The Gettysburg Address.
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
I think it sounds good so far i think i would take out the word probably in the sentence "he would have probably sounded too wordy and lengthy" so it makes you sound more confident in your answer :)
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
Okay :) thanks! I'll show you the second paragraph when I finish it. :)
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
okay :)
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
I need a starter sentence for the second paragraph .__. I don't know what to put
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
@seb.cal can you help me with a starter sentence for my second paragraph? I just need a starter sentence .__.
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
Hmmm... do you know what this second paragraph is going to be about?
seb.cal
  • seb.cal
^
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
It still has to be about the Gettysburg Address I just usually do the rest of the paragraph based on the starter sentence... maybe the importance of the why they made the Gettysburg Address ?
seb.cal
  • seb.cal
Hold up a sec.. Let me go read the Address lol
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
Okay :)
seb.cal
  • seb.cal
Okay, so at the end of the Address, he says, "... the people shall not perish from the earth." That's kinda of a summary of the whole Address. So, maybe write something like how inspiring the Address was and how it gave the people of America a new view of life or how it made the people of America realize how devastating war was or some weird heroic stuff like that... I have to go.. I gotta clean (yay!), so I'll get back to you later, if you still need help ;)
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
That is a good idea ^^^
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
So something like, The Gettysburg Address was an inspiration to many and gave others the motive to fight for their naturally born rights such as freedom.
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
Like that ._.
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
Yeah!
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
Or should I start it off with the quote from the address and then say that?
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
Hmm im not sure if starting with a quote is the right way to go, try adding the quote after the beginning sentence and see how it sounds
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
okay :)
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
The Gettysburg Address was an inspiration to many and gave others the motive to fight for their naturally born rights such as freedom.

Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
does that sound better?
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
Yes and before the quote i would say something such as: in the Gettysburg Address it states, "the quote" you can reword that if you want though haha
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
I need like two more sentences then i'm done lol i'm trying to hurry cause my mom want's to keave and I need to finish this before she leaves
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
Hmm can you explain the quote in a simpler way? explain what it is saying?
seb.cal
  • seb.cal
I would shorten the quote you are including in your sentence. You never want to have something THAT long. It'll "turn off" interest to the reader if you have something like that. I would try summarizing the quote. Write it in your own words, but make it have the same effect.
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
Sorry my mom rushed me off .-. I turned it in ._\ but I'm going to email my teacher a better version so she an grade the one I email her. She'll do it :)
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
@Hayhayz and @seb.cal
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
Oh okay good to hear :)
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
How should I summarize the quote though like which part of the quote do you think is the most important? Cause this is what I turned in: I disagree with the Article because, Abraham Lincoln still told us the importance of the Gettysburg Address. The Richmond Examiner wanted Lincoln to speak in magniloquent but, if Lincoln were to speak in a "magniloquent" manner, then his audience might have gotten lost and spent their time deciphering what Lincoln was saying rather than paying attention to what he was talking about in his speech, which was the whole point.

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."

Over 152 years ago Abraham Lincoln gave the speech The Gettysburg Address, and since then we have guaranteed our freedom and have become an even better nation. As long as I email her the essay today then she will grade it through email but I don't know should I shorten it to this "... 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."
Hayhayz
  • Hayhayz
hmm yea that sounds good
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora
Okay I shortened the quote now I'm adding two or three sentences :)
Adrianna.Gongora
  • Adrianna.Gongora

Over 152 years ago Abraham Lincoln gave the speech The Gettysburg Address. He spoke to his audience, in a way, which almost demanded that they keep fighting to end slavery. Lincoln was also able to convey that all men were created equal. He did this by usage of strong, powerful words. He used words like "consecrate," "nobly," and "vain." These words helped him convey his message, especially when he said, "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... " By having his audience in the “right” attitude, he was able to convey his important message to the people.
