In 1861, tensions over the issues of slavery, economic survival and a state’s right to govern its own erupted into the Civil War, pitting state against state, North against South. At the site of the conflict’s bloodiest battle in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, President Abraham Lincoln delivered what would become the greatest speech in American history. Presented at the Soldiers’ National Cemetery on November 19, 1863, the “Gettysburg Address” took only two minutes to deliver; but Lincoln’s powerful words would forever symbolize the honor and sacrifice required to uphold the American way of life.
