From “Four score and seven years ago…” to “…shall not perish from the earth” Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address contained many phrases that ring through time. Lincoln was not the featured speaker that day, but his short speech of November 18, 1863 is the one that is recalled by Americans today.
This Sunday, November 10, Sara Vaughn Gabbard, Director of the Friends of The Lincoln Collection of Indiana, will discuss “The Gettysburg Address 150 Years Later,” focusing on how his words still resonate today. In the speech, Lincoln said, “The world will little note, nor long remember, what we say here,” but the truth is that the words and phrases still speak to Americans today.
Join us Sunday, November 10th, at 2:00 PM in Meeting Room A & B, in celebration of this this important event in history.
