The iconic speech by President Abraham Lincoln we know today as the Gettysburg Address was delivered 150 years ago today.
On that afternoon, months after one of the most bloodiest battles of the Civil War, Lincoln delivered the carefully chosen words to a nation that was left bruised and broken.
In those few minutes he spoke, he touched on the very founding principles that are espoused by the Declaration of Independence which turned the tides and helped give a ‘new birth of freedom.’
If you haven’t taken the time to read and review one of the greatest speeches in our history, please do. Lincoln was very careful and spoke in a slow and deliberate manner, so read it slowly.
