Four Masterpieces that Define Our Nation Narrated by Max McLean.
  • The Declaration of Independence (1776)
  • The Preamble to the Constitution (1787)
  • The Gettysburg Address (1863)
  • Lincoln’s Second Inaugural (1865)
These four inestimable works of rhetoric are meant to strengthen our understanding of what it means to be an American, and why the American political soul is so drawn to Divine Inspiration. Within these four great pronouncements of American conviction is the belief that while all people are equal, we are equal under God. As is said in the conclusion of the Declaration of Independence, while the signers mutually pledged to each other their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor, they did so “with a firm reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence.”
