The Gettysburg Address is a speech by U.S. President Abraham Lincoln, and is one of the best-known in American history. It was delivered by Lincoln during the midpoint of the American Civil War, on the afternoon of Thursday, November 19, 1863.The occasion for the speech was to address the audience who had come to attend the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, four and a half months after the Union armies defeated those of the Confederacy at the Battle of Gettysburg.
President Abraham Lincoln’s remarks later became known as the Gettysburg Address, were delivered at the official dedication ceremony on the site of one of the bloodiest and most decisive battles of the Civil War. Though he was not the featured orator that day, Lincoln’s 273-word address would be remembered as one of the most important speeches in American history.
In it, he invoked the principles of human equality contained in the Declaration of Independence and connected the sacrifices of the Civil War with the desire for “a new birth of freedom,” as well as the all-important preservation of the Union created in 1776 and its ideal of self-government.
