    Just wow I have been familiar with the fact of the Lincoln Douglas debates for as long as I can remember In high school, I spent three years participating in the forensic event called Lincoln Douglas Debate I knew that Lincoln and Douglas argued with each other a lot when they were both running for the Illinois Senate in 1858 But until I read them for myself as research for a book that I am writing about effective strategies

    I ve listened to these debates too many times to count on my daily commute, at home, and many other places If you are a history nerd like me, this is manna from heaven Listening to David Strathairn as Abraham Lincoln and Richard Dreyfuss as the little giant Stephen Douglas, you almost feel transported back to 1858 as these two political giants trade barbs and debate the most monumental issue of the day, slavery So fascinating, an

    Any one who had a decent US history teacher had some encounter with the debates that took place between the incumbent Senator from Illinois Stephen A Douglas the Little Giant and the candidate Abraham Lincoln in 1858 They were 7 structured encounters that took place during that election which allowed the first speaker one hour to speak, then the opponent took one and a half hours and then the original speaker took a half hour to rebu

    At some point I decided that reading original documents was the way to go when it came to studying history Maybe it was when I realized that the David Barton school of thought I d been brought up in was sketchy Though, DB always claimed to own and base all of his stuff off of original documents, he just never expected anyone to check up on him I guess, but even before I realized all the problems with DB I still admired the idea of readin

    A 19th century internet argument As schoolchildren, we re taught about how seminal the Lincoln Douglas debates were And from a historical perspective, this is true This was Lincoln s first real shot at national prominence Senators being generallypowerful than Congressmen and he was trying to unseat the very influential Douglas.But what comes across in the debates themselves is like reading an internet flame war between two people at 2AM This

    I listened to an audiobook of the entire series of debates as read by Richard Dreyfuss as Stephen A Douglas and David Strathairn as Abraham Lincoln.I won t be able to do justice to the audiobook recorded in 2008 , which I highly recommend to anybody who thinks reading these debates might be a daunting task But here is a link to David Frum s positive review of the audiobook And now, I Fred Wemyss , have this to say about the debates themselves Wh

    I am very glad I listened to the audio version of the debates, with David Strathairn and Richard Dreyfus performing If I hadn t listened to the debates in their entirety, I don t think I would have really appreciated the masterful jobs both Lincoln and Douglas did with strategizing their arguments You can see many of the things we see in today s politics the kowtowing to political correctness, the name calling here liar and forger are the bad ones ,

    Glad I read this before the election this year Things are different now for sure Regardless of who you align yourself with, Lincoln or Douglas, one must admit that no one debates like this anyThe way they presented and defended their stance was commendable Attacking or questioning each other was interesting as well Neither let the other get by with a less than adequate answer If politicians would still debate in this format AND the American people actua

    This book is a verbatim transcript of the 14 debates that Abraham Lincoln and Senator Stephen Douglas had during the hot summer and early fall of 1858 Douglas, the Democrat, tries to paint Lincoln as a Black Republican abolitionist, while Lincoln denies this but steadfastly holds true to his conviction that slavery must not be extended to the territories, while conceding that the government cannot alter slavery where it already existed These debates took pl

    Very interesting audiobook, well suited to the medium given the nature of the content Some works of the English language are meant to be read, or like a speech, listened to These seminal debates between the master orators Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas fall into the works of the great works of rhetoric for the English Language They can and should be digested as an Audio, and these narrators are truly fantastic in the roles they play Effectively, this is tw
