Stephen Colbert Recites the Gettysburg Address…

… and you can too. What a wonderful idea. Ken Burns organized this project in conjunction with his upcoming film on the Gettysburg Address. This could be a wonderful classroom project for any number of grade levels.

    Colbert does an interesting reading of the famous speech; I still prefer Raymond Massey’s take on it however. I just picked up something, however; was it Lincoln who coined the term “Civil War” for this conflict in this speech? I know both sides used a number of epithets to describe the conflict: War of the Rebellion, War for Southern Independence, War of Secession, etc. Anyone know?
