    “United States President Abraham Lincoln surprised his
      audience—which expected a lengthy speech on politics,
      slavery and states‟ rights—with a short speech in which
      he contemplated the effects of the Civil War and offered
      his vision for the future of the nation.”

    contemplation and vision

   Got one, but not the other?
   Success of not discussing both sides?

“He uses parallel sentence structure multiple
  times to achieve these comparisons: „All
  dreaded it, all sought to avert it,‟ and „but one
  of them would make war rather than let the
  nation survive, and the other would accept war
  rather than let it perish.‟ He uses this sentence
  structure to reflect on the similarities in both
  parties that caused the war to start. The author
  is attempting to rid all finger-pointing as to
  who started the war by parallely comparing
  both sides, holding them in equal light. This is
  meant to cause the audience to contemplate the
  blame that they may be giving.”
“Lincoln further utilizes repition; he sues the
  word „war‟ a total of six times in two complex
  sentences. Lincoln seeks to send his audience
  thinking as they must contemplate the negative
  connotation of war in t heir minds. War is often
  associated with blood and death, so Lincoln‟s
  use of the word sets off a serious tone that
  could knock the foolishness out of many close-
  minded people.”

   “On March 4th, 1865, re-elected President
    Abraham Lincoln gave his second Inaugural
    Address. This speech, most expected, was to be
    long and full of references to politics, slavery
    and state‟s right, but instead, Lincoln gave a
    speech wash was short and to the point. He
    first contemplates the effects the Civil War had
    on our country, it‟s people and they way they
    coincided. A short time later, Lincoln offers his
    vision for the future. The way in which
    President Lincoln presents his speech using
    anaphora, apostrophe and repeated words
    helps to convey the purpose of the speech to
    his audience.”
“The Civil War was a war that threatened to tear
  America apart. It was long and extremely
  bloody. Death was its middle name. The South
  fought to keep the slaves; the North fought to
  free them. President Lincoln fought to keep the
  Union together, because he saw America as a
  beacon of freedom for countries that would
  soon follow in her path. In his second
  Inaugural Address, President Lincoln used
  rhetorical strategies to contemplate the Civil
  War‟s effects on America, and to offer a vision
  for America‟s future.”
“President Abraham Lincoln, one of the most
  celebrated presidents, is well known for his
  involvement in the Civil War and the
  emancipation of slaves. He was the man who
  brought he United States through war and
  emerged with the Union intact. He liberated
  millions of men and women who had been
  oppressed for their entire lives and gave them a
  chance for a new existence. Yet before his actions
  became a reality, he had to successfully win the
  war. In his Second Inaugural Address, Lincoln
  thoughtfully reflected upon the effects of the war
  that ravaged the country and also proposed a plan
  to preserve the Union. Through his use of
  rhetorical strategies, Lincoln was able to effectively
  and eloquently convey his message.”
“He uses this allusion to the Bible to emphasize
  the fact that God has a plan for everyone and
  those who fight it and commit crimes…will not
  have as good of a life. Lincoln references God
  to increase his ethos, because in the late 1800‟s
  most citizens of the United States were God-
  fearing Christen people who at the time of the
  war both asked for Him to let their side win.
  God reminded people of church and a feeling
  of belonging and togetherness, which made
  Northerners want to preserve the Union even
  more, leading to Lincoln‟s vision for the future.
  It also reminded the citizens of all that they had
  lost to the Civil War and all they could gain
  back if the Union won.”
“Lincoln continues in a contemplative tone in the
  following paragraphs when he makes several
  allusions to the Bible. Lincoln makes a harsh
  point that of the two sides—North and South—
  ‟Both read the same Bible and pray to the same
  God.‟ Lincoln suggests to his audience that in
  many ways, one‟s enemy is in fact, very similar
  to oneself. The opposing side is not some
  abominable monster, but a person, who has
  fears and quarrels, the same as any other
  human being.”
