The Gettysburg Address...
Item # 664515
November 20, 1863
THE SPRINGFIELD DAILY REPUBLICAN, Massachusetts, Nov. 20, 1863
* President Abraham Lincoln's famous speech
* Gettysburg Address at battlefield cemetery
It would be difficult to argue for a more historic or significance speech from the 19th century, let alone the Civil War. As it was not printed in a newspapers of the day, this report with the full text of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address remains one of the more desired issues by collectors.
Page 2 contains an article headed "Consecration Of The Gettysburg Cemetery" giving considerable detail on the events and ends with the portion headed: "A Closing Address by President Lincoln" which includes a complete printing of his famous speech beginning: "Four score and seven years ago...".
A rare opportunity for a period printing of this notable speech.
Complete in four pages, a piece from the top of the first leaf margin not close to any text, very nice condition.
