Here’s Something You May Not Know About the Gettysburg Address

We recently celebrated the anniversary of one of America’s treasures, The Gettysburgh Address.  Written by President Abraham Lincoln, it was presented to soldiers as a rally for the troops prior to a great battle. You may not realize the importance of this great speech until you live in a military town, or like you have a Son serving in the military.  The words still ring true today.  Here is an excerpt from the Gettysburg Address: ‘Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.’

What you may not know about the Gettysburg Address is that President Lincoln was asked several times for copies of this speech. Well, not like you and I, he couldn’t just run to the copy machine and make a copy, he had to hand write each copy, and each one is just a little different.

Check out some of the versions of The Gettysburgh Address.
