posted by Amy .
Could someone please answer these questions, so I could use this as an example for the other quotes?
"A house divided against itself cannot stand"
1) Source: Abraham Lincoln
2) In What context was it used:
3) Larger significance in illuminating a theme of American history:
Info that I found:
speech showed the danger of disunion because of slavery or between slave and free states
brought emancipation of slaves
From which of Lincoln's speeches does this come? Where was he when he gave the speech? To whom was he speaking?
speech delivered at close of Republican state convention
the convention that named him candidate for US senate
I get it now. I looked at the other post.
