03:55
Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 to April 15, 1865) was the 16th president of the United States and is regarded as one of America's greatest heroes due to his role as savior of the Union and emancipator of the slaves. His rise from humble beginnings to achieving the highest office in the land is a remarkable story. He was suddenly and tragically assassinated at a time when his country needed him to complete the great task remaining before the nation. His eloquence of democracy and insistence that the Union was worth saving embody the ideals of self-government that all nations strive to achieve. Lincoln's distinctively human and humane personality and incredible impact on the nation has endowed him with an enduring legacy. #Biography Subscribe for more Biography: http://aetv.us/2AsWMPH Delve deeper into Biography on our site: http://www.biography.com Follow Biography for more surprising stories from fascinating lives: Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/Biography Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/biography Twitter - https://twitter.com/biography Biography.com captures the most gripping, surprising, and fascinating stories about famous people: The biggest break.

The Best United States Documents - Articles of Confederation; Constitution; Declaration; Gettysburg
 
01:22:39
Best United States Documents - Articles of Confederation by the Second Continental Congress; U.S. Constitution; The Declaration of Independence; Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address The Articles of Confederation: On November 15th, 1777 The Articles of Confederation became the first constitution of the United States, though not yet ratified by the thirteen original colonies. Ratification of the Articles took place almost three and a half years later on March 1st, 1781. The purpose of the articles was to create a confederation of sovereign states with a weak central government; thus allowing state governments to wield most of the power. It wasn't long before the need for a stronger federal government was realized which led to the Articles being replaced by the United States Constitution. The Articles of Confederation is the common term for The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union. The U.S. Constitution: The United States Constitution is the legal backbone of the United States of America and comprises the basic laws of the United States Federal Government. Delegates from twelve of the thirteen original colonies put the Constitution's frame work together in May 1787 in Philadelphia. The Constitution defines the three branches of government and their jurisdictions; they are the Executive Branch (President/Vice President), Legislative Branch (Congress comprised of the Senate & House of Representatives), and the Judicial Branch (the Supreme Court). The need for three branches of government was to create a separation of powers so that not one person or group has full responsibilities, but that they're spread out and each branch must refer to the other by a means of checks and balances. The Declaration of Independence: The Declaration of Independence is a document that is the epitome of freedom and liberty. It was drafted by Thomas Jefferson in 1776 as a list of grievances against the King of England, George III. The Declaration expresses the conviction of Americans in a philosophy of self-evident truths of what individual liberty and freedom should be. The Declaration was the beginning to separation from England and the catalyst for a birth of a nation. The Gettysburg Address: The Gettysburg Address is considered one of the greatest and most quoted speeches of a President throughout American history. President Abraham Lincoln gave his address on the battlefield at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on November 19th, 1863. It was a few months after the battle at Gettysburg was over, the purpose of Lincoln being there was to consecrate a cemetery to the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. It is believed that Lincoln's main goal of this opportunity was to fight for the United States as a united country and to express the equality of all under the law.

The Gettysburg Address By Abraham Lincoln Nov. 19th 1863
 
02:41
Four score 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 battle-field 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 can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not 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.

The Lincoln Lectures — The Great Comeback: How Lincoln Beat The Odds
 
53:02
In the fall of 1858, Abraham Lincoln appeared to be anything but destined for greatness. He was depressed over his loss to Stephen Douglas in the 1858 senatorial campaign and was taking stock of his life. In The Great Comeback, Gary Ecelbarger describes the journey of Abraham Lincoln from the last weeks of 1858 until the end of May in 1860, on the road to his unlikely Republican Presidential nomination.

John F. Kennedy experienced religious intolerance as he campaigned for the presidency. In light of Article VI of the constitution that "No religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States..." Abraham Lincoln and others also fought against the intolerance in their day and here we find ourselves in the same situation again with the current political and religious issues that face us as a nation. Divided in many ways, we hope to overcome that and stand united as one Nation! Please help us spread the message to rise up against religious intolerance today! Online at DWSmovie

Illinois Adventure #1705 "Lincoln's New Salem State Historic Site"
 
10:19
Illinois Adventure visits the Lincoln's New Salem State Historic Site. Lincoln's New Salem State Historic Site, located about two miles South of Petersburg and about 20 miles Northwest of Springfield, is a reconstruction of the village where Abraham Lincoln spent his early adulthood. The six years Lincoln spent in New Salem was pivotal to his career. Although he never owned a home there, Lincoln was engaged in a variety of activities while he was at New Salem. He clerked in a store, split rails, enlisted in the Black Hawk War, served as postmaster and deputy surveyor, failed in business, and was elected to the Illinois General Assembly in 1834 and 1836 after an unsuccessful try in 1832. Twelve log houses, the Rutledge Tavern, ten workshops, stores, mills and a school where church services were held have been reproduced and furnished as they might have been in the 1830s. The furnishings, including many articles actually used by the New Salem people of Lincoln's time and others dating back to the same time period, were assembled and donated to the state by the Old Salem Lincoln League. The collection includes such early-nineteenth-century articles as wheat cradles, candle molds, cord beds, flax hackles, wood cards, dough and cornmeal chests and early American pewter.

Thanksgiving Proclamation by George Washington
 
03:26
The first day of national Thanksgiving was proclaimed by George Washington in the first year of the new American republic, whose appearance on the world stage—after the perilous Revolutionary War, the failure of the Articles of Confederation, and the contentious Constitutional Convention—seemed little short of miraculous. Washington spoke not of harvests but (mainly) of matters political. The structure of his proclamation is straightforward. After the formal introductory opening—"By the President of the United States of America. A Proclamation."—the three paragraphs deal in turn with the reasons President Washington is issuing the proclamation, the things for which he recommends we give thanks to God, and the things for which we should humbly offer God our prayers and supplications.

Walt Whitman "O Captain! My Captain!" Poem animation
 
01:42
Heres a virtual movie of the great Walt Whitman reading legendary poem "O Captain! My Captain!" The extended metaphor poem written in 1865 concerning the death of American president Abraham Lincoln. Walt Whitman wrote the poem after Abraham Lincoln's assassination. Repeated metaphorical reference is made to this issue throughout the verse. The "ship" spoken of is intended to represent the United States of America, while its "fearful trip" recalls the troubles of the American Civil War. The titular "Captain" is Lincoln himself.[1] With a conventional meter and rhyme scheme that is unusual for Whitman, it was the only poem anthologized during Whitman's lifetime. Many articles of the time stated that Whitman was planning to change his writing style, and after reading this poem, they were shocked with his counter-attack on the media. He only wrote a poem like this once. Jim Clark All rights are reserrved on this video recording copyright Jim Clark 2011 PLEASE NOTE - The image used in this animation is not actualy Walt Whitman it is a lookalike of Walt Whitman and is not to my knowledge a copyrighted image please write to me if you have bonafide information to the contrary. at my email address of [email protected] O Captain! My Captain!............. O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done; The ship has weathered every rack, the prize we sought is won; The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting, While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring: But O heart! heart! heart! O the bleeding drops of red, Where on the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead. O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells; Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills; For you bouquets and ribboned wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding; For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning; Here Captain! dear father! This arm beneath your head; It is some dream that on the deck, You've fallen cold and dead. My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still; My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will; The ship is anchored safe and sound, its voyage closed and done; From fearful trip, the victor ship, comes in with object won; Exult, O shores, and ring, O bells! But I, with mournful tread, Walk the deck my Captain lies, Fallen cold and dead.

Elusive Victories: The American Presidency at War, Discussion with Andrew Polsky
 
01:01:57
ABOUT THE EVENT On April 4, 1864, Abraham Lincoln made a shocking admission about his presidency. "I claim not to have controlled events," he wrote in a letter, "but confess plainly that events have controlled me." Lincoln's Civil War era words carry an invaluable lesson for wartime presidents, writes Andrew J. Polsky in this seminal book. As Polsky shows, when commanders-in-chief do try to control wartime events, more often than not they fail utterly. In Elusive Victories, Polsky provides a fascinating study of six wartime presidents, drawing larger lessons about the limits of the power from the White House during armed conflict. He examines, in turn, Lincoln, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, showing how each gravely overestimated his power as commander-in-chief. In each case, these presidents' resources did not match the key challenges that recur from war to war. With insight and clarity, Polsky identifies overarching issues that will inform current and future policymakers. The single most important dynamic, he writes, is the erosion of a president's freedom of action. Each decision propels him down a path from which he cannot turn back. Elusive Victories is the first book to provide a comprehensive account of presidential leadership during wartime, highlighting the key dangers that presidents have ignored at their peril. About the Speakers: Andrew J. Polsky is professor of Political Science at Hunter College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York. He is the author of two books, Elusive Victories: The American Presidency at War (Oxford University Press, 2012) and The Rise of the Therapeutic State (Princeton University Press, 1991). Elusive Victories has been chosen as a main selection of the History Book Club and the Military Book Club for July 2012. In addition, he has written numerous scholarly articles and chapters on the American presidency, wartime presidential leadership, political parties, business in American politics, and American political development. From 2005 to 2010, he served as the editor of Polity, ranked among the ten best-known political science scholarly journals. Gideon Rose is the editor of Foreign Affairs and the Peter G. Peterson chair. He served as managing editor of the magazine from 2000 to 2010. Prior to this, he was the Olin senior fellow and deputy director of National Security Studies and the Council on Foreign Relations. From 1994 to 1995, Mr. Rose served as associate director of the Near East and South Asian affairs on the staff of the National Security Council. He was assistant editor at the foreign policy quarterly, the National Interest, from 1986 to 1987, and held the main position at the domestic policy quarterly, the Public Interest, from 1985 to 1986. He received his BA in classics from Yale and his PhD in government from Harvard. and has taught American foreign policy at Columbia and Princeton.

Government Conspiracy Thriller by author Vincent E. Heck (HeckPhillyRamblings.com) Follow the author on Twitter: @HeckPhilly Follow the book's news on Twitter: @_We_ThePeople A father, Jason Upton, wants to teach his daughter the great story of America. He takes time from his busy schedule to do so. On the board of the U.S. defense committee, he oversees the protection of the United States from the campus in World Trade Center's building 7, NYC. Every night from his comfortable desk chair, he speaks with his dear daughter, Vanessa Upton, telling her the stories of, among others, George Washington, Lewis and Clark, and Abraham Lincoln. He tells her how those folks changed the world, but sacrificed a lot to do so; to the point of death, and mass destruction. He proudly boasts about the Gold Rush and oil discovery along the way. He speaks on America's piercing into the dimension of being the current world power by flexing their collective intelligent muscles with the atomic bomb in Japan. He lays out how a collection of different cultures always trumps one mindset of people. He boasts about the stubbornness and rebelliousness that has been the building and sustaining point of the multi-cultural America as we know it. He talks about freedom and the pursuit of happiness. Vanessa learns a lot, and uses it to pick her career in life. Then 9/11 changes their world forever. His department is transferred to Washington D.C. and consolidated into a new department -- 'The Department of Homeland Security' -- and funny things begin to mold around him. Things up to and past the date of 9-11-2001 don't add up, and people he thought he knew, begin to surprise him with uncharacteristic viewpoints. In the new government structure, they change their whole policy, and the government he previously knew took on a new life. After a few officials under him turn up missing, he looks into some files that he may not have been allowed to look into, thrusting him into the fugitive run of his life. One man against the whole American government. Along the way, he recounts the stories he told his daughter about the pride and birth of America, the things he finds along his single-man fugitive life spell out how that same American pride and rebelliousness is leading to the death of America. Determined to find the right answer, he continues his one-man revolution. The strengths and weaknesses of the U.S.A. surface. A government official who worked in building 7 during its collapse gets stuck between compelling conspiracy theories and his own experiences. The birth and death of the United States of America happens. A new era is born.
