Gettysburg Address

On November 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln went to the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, to give a speech for the dedication of the new soldier's cemetery. The speech was much shorter than anyone expected it to be, but it was so powerful that people are still talking about it and studying it today. Gettysburg was the town where the Battle of Gettysburg took place during the American Civil War.
