The Gettysburg Address...

Item # 675845

November 28, 1863


* President Abraham Lincoln
* Gettysburg Address at battlefield cemetery

Page 3 contains a report headed: "The Gettysburg Ceremonies" "Description of the Battle-Field and Consecration Exercises" as well as one of the most memorable speeches ever given by a President.
The article takes nearly two columns and contains much reporting on the ceremonies in Gettysburg, less than 5 months after the pivotal battle fought there. Included also is the speech which is prefaced with: "The dedicatory remarks were then delivered by the President, as follows:..." and what follows is the complete text of what we now know as the Gettysburg Address, beginning: "Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation...".
This issue contains a wealth of other reports on the Civil War but they obviously pale in comparison to this famous speech found on page 3.
Eight pages, never bound, some wear at the spine margin and a small wear hole at the fold puncture of the front leaf, no condition issues with page 3 save for the typical foxing as found in issues of the era.
