Parker ClarkMrs. Lunsford16 February 2020AP LangEmancipation Proclamation & Gettysburg Address1.The author uses ethos and continuously refers to himself as the President. He also talks about the law he stands multiple times.2.Skip3.He addresses them on line 9 and says that they are not slaves and they are protected.4.Skip5.He does this to give more support to the points he made. “We fought as a country for independence yet we are oppressing others”. He gives the people inspiration.6.I would defend Kaplan’s position because Abraham Lincoln ended up being a really goodPresident. He was not persuasive and instead just gave his points by stating facts.
