Product Description
Five months after having lived through the Civil War’s Battle of Gettysburg in his hometown, 18-year-old Daniel Skelly, a store clerk, experienced another major event in U. S. History. The people of Gettysburg had spearheaded a movement to gather all the thousands of Union dead left by Gen. George Meade’s army into one cemetery. They had invited Sen. Edward Everett to be the main speaker, but they also invited President Abraham Lincoln to say a few words. Daniel followed Lincoln on foot on November 18, 1863, as the president rode a horse to the ceremony, looking very comical with his long legs almost dragging on the ground. This teen also clung to the platform where the speeches were given and remembered the important points of the speech years later. High school and middle school students can go with Daniel to the ceremony and see the Gettysburg Address through his teen eyes in this activity by Through Teen Eyes.
