    “On November 19, 1863, at the dedication of a military cemetery at
    Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, during the American Civil War, President Abraham
    Lincoln delivers one of the most memorable speeches in American history. In
    just 272 words, Lincoln brilliantly and movingly reminded a war-weary
    public why the Union had to fight, and win, the Civil War.

    The Battle of Gettysburg, fought some four months earlier, was the single
    bloodiest battle of the Civil War. Over the course of three days, more than
    45,000 men were killed, injured, captured or went missing. The battle also
    proved to be the turning point of the war: General Robert E. Lee’s defeat
    and retreat from Gettysburg marked the last Confederate invasion of
    Northern territory and the beginning of the Southern army’s ultimate
    decline.

    Charged by Pennsylvania’s governor, Andrew Curtin, to care for the
    Gettysburg dead, an attorney named David Wills bought 17 acres of pasture
    to turn into a cemetery for the more than 7,500 who fell in battle. Wills
    invited Edward Everett, one of the most famous orators of the day, to
    deliver a speech at the cemetery’s dedication. Almost as an afterthought,
    Wills also sent a letter to Lincoln—just two weeks before the
    ceremony—requesting “a few appropriate remarks” to consecrate the grounds.

    At the dedication, the crowd listened for two hours to Everett before
    Lincoln spoke. Lincoln’s address lasted just two or three minutes. The
    speech reflected his redefined belief that the Civil War was not just a
    fight to save the Union, but a struggle for freedom and equality for all,
    an idea Lincoln had not championed in the years leading up to the war. This
    was his stirring conclusion: “The world will little note, nor long remember
    what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us
    the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they
    who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be
    here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these
    honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave
    the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these
    dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a
    new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for
    the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

    Reception of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address was initially mixed, divided
    strictly along partisan lines. Nevertheless, the “little speech,” as he
    later called it, is thought by many today to be the most eloquent
    articulation of the democratic vision ever written.”

  • no one speaks like this no more 

  • The Gettysburg Address, spoken by Jeff Daniels

    It was true then, it’s true now.

  • I wish I could be there 150 years ago today to witness this great speech
    given by President Lincoln himself.

  • what’s the background music

  • “and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall
    not perish from the earth.”

  • November 19, one hundred fifty years ago: Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address
    remains an inspiring reminder. I just thought I’d post what I think is a
    nice presentation of the timeless speech.

  • May be our leaders around the world learn this art of communication,
    instead of being so verbose to put us to slumber.

  • i like trains

  • On the 150th anniversary of one of the most powerful political speeches of
    all time–Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, I love this rendition by Jeff
    Daniels.

  • 150 years ago

  • I LIKE TURTLES!!!!!

  • GOD BLESS AMERICAAAAA

  • 8 dislikes from Jefferson Davis

  • you rock lincoln!

  • such a good speech and a good voice..like it

  • Imagine the possibility that the entire civil war could have been avoided
    if the founding fathers had signed into law making slavery illegal
    therefore the debate would have ended there it would have been settled from
    the very beginning. I believe Lincoln’s intentions in the beginning of his
    presidency was not to end slavery but to keep it from spreading to the west
    it was the attack on Fort Sumter that compelled Lincoln to act. There is no
    solitary person responsible for any war.
