Description

This broadside features the text of President Abraham Lincoln's speech delivered at the dedication of the National Cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on November 19, 1863. Between the title and the text is an illustration of Lincoln standing at a table with a crowd of people all around him.
