Speeches: The Gettysburg Address was delivered 145 years ago today

Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address was so significant a moment in our history that it is part of the structure of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC.  President Lincoln delivered the speech 145 years ago today.  It still serves as a model of content, eloquence and direction.  The perfect speech at an imperfect time, it still serves to inspire and guide us.
