Reviewer Kent Gramm writes that the husband-and-wife duo, Bradley M. and Linda I. Gotffried “have produced an outstanding book” in Lincoln Comes to Gettysburg: The Creation of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery and Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Part of the book’s success lies in its comprehensive nature, with examinations of the impulse to create a cemetery, its “location and design,” the transportation of the fallen soldiers’ bodies, and an analysis of Lincoln’s address. Along the way, the authors dispense with long-held myths, especially the stubbornly resilient belief that Lincoln wrote the address on his journey to Gettysburg.
