When one thinks of the American Civil War, the images of the Battle of Gettysburg comes to mind and it's little wonder. The Battle of Gettysburg was fought July 1–3, 1863, in and around the town of Gettysburg, PA, by Union and Confederate forces during the American Civil War. The battle involved the largest number of casualties of the entire war and is often described as the war's turning point.

Union Major General George Meade's Army of the Potomac defeated attacks by Confederate General Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, ending Lee's attempt to invade the North. The battle was marked by fierce fighting all three days, questionable leadership on the part of the south, and the first time the union had won a major devastating battle that would turn the fortunes of war.

The Gettysburg Address is a speech by 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, PA, four and a half months after the Union armies defeated those of the Confederacy at the Battle of Gettysburg.

President Abraham Lincoln’s 273 word address would later become known as the Gettysburg Address, and 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.
