It was three days in July 1863 that brought the small town of Gettysburg to the forefront of our nation. However, it was in November 1863, that President Abraham Lincoln would in just a few short minutes deliver a speech that still today provides insight and inspiration for the world.
The Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the American Civil War. Many historians agree that it was on these hallowed grounds that our nation was saved.
There are events all year long to celebrate the 150th Anniversary.
