Overview

The True Story Behind Lincoln's Gettysburg Address by Jennifer Armstrong, Albert Lorenz

Get the behind-the-scenes scoop on President Lincoln’s most famous speech, which still has meaning 150 years later.

In 1863, Abraham Lincoln gave one of the most important speeches in the history of the United States—the Gettysburg Address. It wasn’t even much a speech, really. Just a few remarks. Not meant to be remembered.

Yet 150 years later, those few remarks have been remembered. How come? What was the true meaning behind them? Where did they come from? Why is it so important that we never forget what President Lincoln said on that cold November day?

Originally published as A Three-Minute Speech, this concise, illustrated exploration of a momentous historical event is both fascinating and easy to read.
