Civil War Trust commemorates Gettysburg Address

Video

This week, Civil War Trust commemorates one of the most significant moments in American history.

Following the Battle of Gettysburg, President Abraham Lincoln delivered “a few short remarks” at the dedication of a National Cemetery in Gettysburg, where 3,500 Union soldiers who died in battle were laid to rest. In less than 300 words, Lincoln expressed the critical need to remember the lost soldiers, and implored us, “the living,” to heed their sacrifice and preserve the Union.

In a video on the Gettysburg Address, historian Jared Frederick explains the key points of the speech and their ramifications for the American public.
