Abraham Lincoln spent just 25 hours in Gettysburg, but while he was here, he changed the course of history. This program follows Lincoln’s visit step-by-step and highlights dozens of first-hand accounts written by people who witnessed the president deliver the most famous speech of all time. Participants will have the opportunity to view up close one of the rarest artifacts in our collection—
an original program from the Gettysburg Address.
Witnessing Lincoln is part of the 2023 Hands-On History Educational Programming Series. This event is free and open to the public.
