The Lincoln/Douglas debates.
I absolutely love Paul Giamatti. Anything he does is excellent. He knocked it out of the park. The CDs are a recreation of the Lincoln Douglas debate for the Senate seat which was ultimately won by Douglas. Although I make no secrets about my feelings towards Lincoln, this work, taken from the transcripts of the seven debates gives you a window into what made Lincoln appealing to people.
