Prof. Emeritus Gabor Boritt's book contribution mentioned in Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Prof. Emeritus Gabor Boritt's contribution to the reissue of a book titled "Lincoln's Gettysburg Address" was featured in a Feb. 19 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette article.

From the Post-Gazette:

The reissued edition includes a facsimile of the Gettysburg Address in Lincoln's handwriting as well as an afterword by Gabor Boritt, a Civil War expert at Gettysburg College, who sets Lincoln's speech in historical perspective for young readers. In addition, there is a final, fascinating section in which each of Daugherty's illustrations is reprinted in miniature and then paired with his comments about them.

Although Daugherty's work is all but forgotten now, he was an award-winning children's book creator when he published "Lincoln's Gettysburg Address." His novel, "Daniel Boone," won the 1940 Newbery Medal. The award is given annually by the American Library Association (ALA) to the best-written children's book.
