Nov 18 2020 The Lost Gettysburg Address

Few remember Edward Everett's oration that preceded Lincoln's masterpiece, but hardly anyone is aware of Louisville, Kentucky native Charles Anderson's speech, which concluded the day's events.

Davis Dixon argues that the three featured speeches need to be viewed as a rhetorical ensemble to better understand Lincoln’s address and the political context of the Gettysburg dedication.

The back story is the saga of Anderson himself, a slaveholder who sacrificed nearly everything to help Lincoln save the Union.

David Dixon earned his M.A. in history from the University of Massachusetts in 2003. He has published numerous articles in scholarly journals and magazines. Most focus on Union sympathizers in the Civil War South.

He hosts B-List History, a website that features obscure characters and their compelling stories. You may download free pdf versions of his published articles on that website at www.davidtdixon.com.

David’s latest book is the biography of German revolutionary and Union General August Willich, published by the University of Tennessee Press in September 2020. It highlights the contributions of 200,000 German-born immigrants to the Union effort in the Civil War. Transatlantic radicals like Willich viewed the war as part of a much larger, global revolution for social justice and republican government.
