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.

The Emancipation Proclamation was an executive order issued by President Abraham Lincoln on January 1, 1863, as a war measure during the American Civil War, directed to all of the areas in rebellion and all segments of the executive branch of the United States. It proclaimed the freedom of slaves in the ten states that were still in rebellion, excluding areas controlled by the Union and thus applying to 3 million of the 4 million slaves in the U.S. at the time.
The Proclamation did not compensate the owners, did not outlaw slavery, and did not grant citizenship to the ex-slaves. It made the eradication of slavery an explicit war goal, in addition to the goal of reuniting the Union.
