Quotation activity – gettysburg address

 

It is important to be able to  incorporate your sources effectively through direct quotation. For this  activity, you will use Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address” to practice  writing an essay while effectively incorporating quotations to help  support your discussion.

For this activity, you will write an essay and address the following points:

  • What is a “proposition” in the sense that Lincoln uses it?
  • What does it mean to “consecrate” a place?
  • What is “hallowed” ground?
  • The “Gettysburg Address” is short but very famous. He was the  President, he could have spoken longer, and most speakers that day, in  fact, delivered much longer speeches. He wasn’t pressed for time. He had  time to prepare. A long speech was expected of him. Why do you think Lincoln kept it so short? (Hint: Where was he speaking and why? How did his “rhetorical situation” influence him?)
  • Do you see any correlations from Douglass’ work to this work?  If  so, how do you see this occurring in the text?  Be sure to quote from  Douglass if you see a correlation.

Requirements:

  • Your written paper should be two to three pages in length, not counting the title and reference pages, which you must include.
  • You must accurately insert a quote in your analysis to provide  in-text evidence from the address, and you must comment on the quote to  demonstrate you are thinking in a critical manner.
  • Your paper must be formatted according to the CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA.
