The Perfect Tribute

Gelesen von Lee Smalley

Part 1 of this brief historical fiction is a recounting of the day before and the day of Lincoln's delivery of The Gettysburg Address. Part 2 is an imagining of the late afternoon of the following day. It is a moving tale that illustrates once again the greatness of the speech and of the man who wrote and delivered it. Andrews' best remembered work, "The Perfect Tribute" was adapted into a 1935 MGM short film and a 1991 television movie starring Jason Robards as the president.
