Gettysburg Commemoration

Governor Pat Quinn announced an ambitious series of events to mark the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address and help people across Illinois appreciate the famed speech’s impact on history.  The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum will present one of the few handwritten copies of the address in a special evening display November 18th. An honor guard will watch over the address as visitors file past to see it in person before the fragile document returns to the library’s vault.  According to Illinois Historic Preservation Agency Director Amy Martin, The 150th anniversary is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Illinoisans to celebrate the speech and the continuing success of government “of the people, by the people, for the people”. Several of the state’s historic sites with Lincoln connections will host special events and activities leading up to the Gettysburg Address 150th anniversary.  For more information, visit GettysburgAddress150.com.
