    Only 8 pages. Very short. Multiple errors in the address. You can find better versions on the internet and you can print them out.

    L

    I haven't read this yet, and ya know what? I bet they didn't add the part before the adress and after the battle Lincoln had all the Yankees have a proper burial and left the Rebels on the feild! I'm not siding with the Rebels I'm shocked that an American president left Americans out on the feild to rot. Yes, I know the Rebels seperated from the u.s. but they were just as American though first called Southern as their Northern counterparts
