audio recording needed

Comments about PBS Lincoln@Gettysburg DVD:

I really enjoyed the short 1 hour story about Lincoln at Gettysburg. It helped me understand the meaning behind the Gettysburg Address. I think an audio cd recording of it would also make a great gift. A lot of people who drive south in the winter months listen to books on cd. I think PBS would benefit from making some of their video recordings available for audio recordings as well.

Wonderful Program

Comments about PBS Lincoln@Gettysburg DVD:

This is another fine PBS production highlighting an essential event that defines what being an American is all about. It is clear that the program also highlights the unconscious bias of the producers in that clips of modern presidential use of Lincoln's example focus only on Democrats ignoring president's of Lincoln's own party, the Republicans. They feature Obama modifying Lincoln's words to his own purposes by badly paraphrasing the coda, when in fact the fine oration of Regan, and his homage to Lincoln is completely ignored. Irony of ironies is the fact that Obama chose to ignore the invitation to speak at the 150th anniversary event in Gettysburg.
Great program, excellent production values, but you must watch it with open eyes and ears. Beware the subtle messages, and be aware of the reality of present day politics.

Excellent

Comments about PBS Lincoln@Gettysburg DVD:

The details in prospective and accurate outlook at what really happend pre and post Gettsburg was excellent and on point. The fact that Mr. lincoln developed a case of small-pox while at Gettysburg and the fact that the deseae incubated on his way back to Washington after the Gettysberg appearance, also fatally infected his man-servant was an eye opening reallity never revealed in my advanced American History classes. Remarkable
