Gettysburg address

The Emotional Appeal of

the Gettysburg Address

Emotional appeal- attempts to arouse the audiences feelings, often by using rhetorical devices that evoke an emotional response.

In this Address Lincoln gives many emotional appeals because he is trying to lift the spirits of the people of Gettysburg. Although the speech was only 2 minutes long and it left many people unimpressed in the long run it came out to be a good thing.

Lincoln used this by looking back upon the battle at Gettysburg. He said “ The world will little note what we say here, but we can never forget what we did here.” And that is saying the world may never know what Lincoln gave his speech about, but the world will know about the battle and all the lives that were lost at Gettysburg.
