    At the ceremony
    honoring half of the fallen dead at Gettysburg, Lincoln delivered
    a speech justifying the slaughter. It became the most memorable
    speech in American history — surely the most famous Presidential
    speech. I had to memorize it in the fifth grade in 1952, in the
    town of Marietta, Ohio.

    We need to
    remember it for what it really was: a political speech. Political
    speeches are not noted for their full disclosure. So, I have re-written
    it. Here is the Gettysburg Address, decoded in terms of Republican
    Party politics in the fall of 1863.
