The Gettysburg Address, delivered Nov. 19, 1863, by President Abraham Lincoln at the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pa., lasted just over two minutes and framed the Civil War as a struggle for the principle of human equality.

Sponsors of the event are The Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions at Vanderbilt, The First Amendment Center, Communications Studies and the Vanderbilt Speaker’s Committee.
