For Lincoln and Liberty Too

Today is the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address.  Those of you who follow the History Tourist on Facebook know that I spent my lunch hour at the Lincoln Memorial in DC, watching a reenactment of the address.  This is just a quick post with some extra photos.

First came Edward Everett of Massachusetts: U.S. Representative, U.S. Senator, governor, diplomat and president of Harvard.  Thankfully, the Everett reenactor did not speak for  two hours, as did the original.  I don’t know what he cut out, but 15 minutes and he was done.

Then came  Abraham Lincoln.  No introduction necessary.
