President Abraham Lincoln 
Gettysburg Address 
November, 1863  

During his Gettysburg Address, President Lincoln humbly acknowledged that his brief speech would not stand the test of time - that words alone could never compare to the actions of the men who nobly fought and died here. 

However, his important words still resonate today. Gettysburg and Lincoln’s address still inspire new dialogues and thoughtful discussions.
