"New Birth of Freedom"
By: Samantha Stevenson
Lincoln gave a speech 87 years ahead from when we declared independence in 1776. Many people have fought in this war and the war ended badly with many dead. The battle was between the North and the South. The North won which set slaves free and to declare independence in 1776. This speech is called The Gettysburg Address.
This is a photo of Lincoln giving the Gettysburg Address. Surrounded by many people listening to him.
Pharrell Williams - Freedom
How does the speech resonate with me today?
The speech means to me that if none of this happened, there wouldn't be freedom. We would still have slaves and there would still be some type of conflict happening. I thank those who have fought in these battles for the freedom that I have today.
