On This Day



On This Day… Lincoln Delivered The Gettysburg Address

Written by: George Chittenden : 13 Jun 2019

It was on this day, 19th November, back in 1863, when U.S. President Abraham Lincoln delivered one of the most famous speeches in American history, the Gettysburg Address. The speech was delivered in the afternoon at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, four and a half months after the Union armies defeated those of the Confederacy at the Battle of Gettysburg.

Lincoln's carefully crafted address reiterated the principles of human equality, promised a new birth of freedom that would bring true equality to all its citizens, and paid tribute to the sacrifices of those who gave their lives at Gettysburg. It’s interesting to observe in the images, the difference between artists impressions of historical events and the actual reality.
