Abraham Lincoln: The Gettysburg Address

The Gettysburg Address relates directly to the reform part of the prompt. It
explains the battle and makes reference to the direction america as a
whole is going in. The speech also helped motivate the general public and
would be beneficial to include in our website.

Geo. G. Meade Letter to Townsend


This letter explains Meade's views on the outcome of the Civil War. This
letter helps answer the reform aspect of the Prompt because Meade talks
about the steps taken after the Union's victory and the winning streak of
the Union Army. We could use his letter in the Reform section of our
website. I think it would help the viewers understand the situation the
confederates are in because of their loss.
