SWANTON'S GETTYSBURG HISTORY
Tuesday, November 19, 2013 marked the 150th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln's noted Gettysburg Address which he wrote on a train and presented on the Gettysburg Battlefield located in southcentral Pennsylvania. It is one of the most famous and endearing speeches made by an American president. To read the speech & learn more about President Lincoln, click on the photo above. Shortly after Lincoln's assassination, Senator Charles Sumner, who was a very well educated man but in many ways a political opponent of President Lincoln, nevertheless stated that, "In all of literature and in all languages, the Gettysburg Address is the greatest speech that was ever written." April 15, 2015 marked the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln's assassination.
