I'm thinking most community and school libraries have these, too.

You knew I was going to bring up American Rhetoric.

4. American Rhetoric: The Power of Oratory in the United States

There are seven speeches here by Lincoln, with various speakers. For example, there are six different  readings of  'The Gettysburg Address.' I really like Colin Powell's interpretation.

These include a wordsearch, vocabulary, crossword, challenge, others, but I really liked the Gettysburg Address page.

 Here is my previous post about the movie and life of Lincoln.
