Abraham Lincoln Created out of the Entire Gettysburg Address.
Abraham Lincoln is considered by many historians to have been the greatest American president. Lincoln's achievements include guiding his country through the most devastating experience in its national history (The Civil War) and freeing the slaves. His assassination just at the war's end assured his continuing fame. There is very little doubt as to how popular and important Lincoln is to this generation. He is constantly quoted, studied and looked up for inspiration.
What is really amazing is that not only was Abraham Lincoln simply one of if not the greatest leader in American History, he also gave the greatest speech in American History. In just over two minutes, Lincoln invoked the principles of human equality espoused by the Declaration of Independence and redefined the Civil War as a struggle not merely for the Union, but as "a new birth of freedom" that would bring true equality to all of its citizens, ensure that democracy would remain a viable form of government, and would also create a unified nation in which state’s rights were no longer dominant.
Lincolns appearance cannot be ignored either. From his hat to his beard to high height – Abraham Lincoln was a political cartoonists dream. His memorable look matched his memorable achievements.
In celebration of this great American we have recreated his distinct profile out of all the words to his greatest moment – The Gettysburg Address.
