Blog: Reimagining Gettysburg

In today’s often hostile political and social climate, we need Gettysburg now more than ever.

Gettysburg and Lincoln’s immortal Gettysburg Address remind us of the need to unite and move forward together to preserve our democracy. They remind us of the need for humility. The need for civility. The need for inclusivity.

Gettysburg Foundation President, author and distinguished professor emeritus Matthew C. Moen, Ph.D. takes a new look at Gettysburg and what we can learn from these Civil War stories in these less-than-civil times.

Take a moment to reimagine–and revisit–Gettysburg.
