November 23, 1863
DAILY MISSOURI DEMOCRAT, St. Louis, Nov. 23, 1863 It would be difficult to argue for a more notable speech from the 19th century than the Gettysburg Address by President Abraham Lincoln.

BROWNLOW’S KNOXVILLE WHIG, AND REBEL VENTILATOR, Tennessee, Nov. 23, 1864 W. G. Brownlow, or Parson Brownlow, was a fascinating personality to say the least.
