A House Divided Talks About Host: Bjorn Skaptason
The Ultimate Guide to the Gettysburg Address
Join us, when Bjorn Skaptason talks with David Hirsch and Dan Van Haften about The Ultimate Guide to the Gettysburg Address. This remarkable book follows in the footsteps of the duo’s Abraham Lincoln and the Structure of Reason book (also available).
The authors clearly demonstrate Lincoln’s use of the six elements of a proposition and then diagram and explain how his in-depth study of geometry helped him compose the Gettysburg Address.
Bjorn Skaptason holds a M.A., in history from Loyola University Chicago.
He has published essays on Ambrose Bierce at Shiloh for the Ambrose Bierce Project Journal, on the United States Colored Troops in the campaign and battle of Brice’s Crossroads for the West Tennessee Historical Society Papers, and in the Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society on The Chicago Light Artillery.
A dealer in antiquarian books, Bjorn produces and guest hosts A House Divided for Author’s Voice®, a live book discussion program streamed from Abraham Lincoln Book Shop, Inc. in Chicago.
