Remembering the Gettysburg Address


As one of the foundation documents of our Nation, the Gettysburg Address stands the test of time for its message on freedom and equality. On November 19, 1863, in 272 words, President Abraham Lincoln spoke for approximately two minutes on a rather controversial subject for the time - the idea that all human beings are equal. Rule of law and American democracy survived the turbulent Civil War, as well as 150 years of challenges and even modern conflicts since the speech. The Address deserves recognition as a seminal American text, and our school and community will be enriched by a lively, interactive celebration of its anniversary.

GettyReady is a Utah-based non-profit established to encourage learners of all ages to memorize, study and apply the Gettysburg Address on its anniversary and beyond.
