The Gettysburg Address
Learning More About President Lincoln
The Gettysburg Address is known for the monumental impact it had on history. Even though it was only two minutes long, President Lincoln was able to explain that our nation was founded on the idea that all people are created equal. That belief was being tested by the Civil War. Lincoln reassured the people that all who sacrificed their lives defending this belief would not have done so for nothing, and he was right!
