"These slaves constituted a peculiar any powerful entrance. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war.
A is the answer to this
Both answers have flaws. They are the best of bad choices.
This quotation comes from the Bible (Matthew 18:7) and as far as I can tell, it is a paraphrase. These words say that the world must suffer through the bad (evil) that man creates; Lincoln is trying to say that it is bad enough we must suffer through these things, it is worse for he who brings the suffering upon us. He is not condemnatory. He is never condemnatory. He is not judgmental, not in the usual sense.
He is not aggressive and unforgiving. Anything but. He is puzzled and full of compassion for the events that he sees around him.
He is not being superior. Never that.
The best answer is the words shift from anger to pity, but it is not a great answer. The answer is B
The war is nearly over. He knows that. He is full of compassion for those who found a need to fight the war. Your answer is between A and D and both are in his speech. I think I would lean to A, but do not be surprised at D.
C) They give the paragraph an intense and foreboding tone
The words give the paragraph an intense and foreboding tone because it shows the author's strong feelings about a war that he would have preferred to avoid four years ago, that everyone dreaded and that represented a coming evil because it sought to destroy the Union as well as the peace and lives of many.
Lincoln shows that the Union was destined to fail because the country chose to allow slavery while claiming national values of freedom and liberty.
In the passage from Lincon's speech shown in the question above, we can see that he places the blame for all the damage and disadvantages that the war brought to the country, in the government itself.
He claims that the government was contradictory in what it swore to defend, freedom. When the government established slavery as normal and acceptable, it renounced the freedom that it so advocated and that renunciation was the main cause of the war.
In short, Lincoln shows that the Union was destined to fail because the country chose to allow slavery by claiming national values of freedom and freedom.
Part A- The correct answer is C. Lincoln's use of the words anxiously, dreaded, and destroy give the paragraph an intense and foreboding tone.
Lincoln uses these words to give his speech a tone of reproach to the attitudes of those who, as he mentions, sought to unleash war. He speaks from a conciliatory position, but emphasizing that there were people who sought to harm the nation.
Part B- The tone identified in Part A and Lincoln's repeated use of the word all advance his purpose of explaining the broadly held view of war as a serious event that could easily have been avoided, if both the fear and the desire to avoid the conflict had prevailed over the interests that caused the Civil War to break out.
