The Gettysburg Address

Today is the sesquicentennial of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. In the spirit of commemoration, here is a page image from the an 1864 account of the dedication services which was issued as a fundraiser for the Soldiers’ National Monument at Gettysburg, entitled Address of Hon. Edward Everett, at the Consecration of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg, 19th November, 1863. This booklet was displayed in 2011-12 as part of the library’s Life and Legacy of the King James Bible exhibit.
