"The World Will Little Note, Nor Long Remember . . . "

by Maureen Puffer-Rothenberg on November 5, 2010 in Odum Library

Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address at the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery on November 19, 1863. Here you can see an amazing animation of the Gettysburg Address.

Odum Library of course has books about Lincoln and the Gettysburg Address including November: Lincoln’s Elegy at Gettysburg (an ebook) and Lincoln at Gettysburg: the Words that Remade America.

We also have facsimiles of handwritten drafts of the Gettysburg Address.

Lincoln is the man nearest the center of the photo, without the hat. Clicking on the image will take you to a Library of Congress site where you can view the entire (larger) photograph.

Thanks for making this available. It makes one realize that these great words are still as relevant today as 147 years ago…..very moving.
