150th Anniversary of Iconic Speech

     On Tuesday, November 19th, thousands of people gathered on a battlefield site in Pennsylvania to pay honor to one of the best known, and one of the most highly regarded, speeches in American history. Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address not only dedicated a national cemetary to those fallen in battle, but also presented Lincoln's view on the larger significance of the Civil War.
