SO WHAT

There are five existing versions that President Lincoln wrote by hand. Lincoln's speach was only two minutes long. It is one of the great American speeches of all time. The speech was given at Gettysburg November 19, 1863 , at a dedication for a national cemetery , for the soldiers who died during the Confederate's attempt to defeat the Union Army. This speech was given four months after the war.

This documenti s so interesting because there is no way it could have been written on the way to Gettysburg, Theory has it that Lincoln went through several drafts, as evidenced by the minimal changes found on this particular final version.

This address neither started nor ended the war. It was given during the war several months after the battle at the dedication of cemetery located at the battle site.
