Gettysburg Address On November 19, 1863, the National Military Cemetery in Gettyburg, Pennsylvania was officially dedicated. The Battle of Gettysburg lasted three days, from July 1 to 3, 1863. Some 150,000 men engaged in the Civil War's most important engagement--and some 50,000 of them became casualties. Edward Everett, a famed orator, was the keynote speaker at the dedication ceremony five months later. He spoke for two hours. President Abraham Lincoln was invited--almost as an afterthought--to make a few appropriate remarks. He followed Everett and spoke for just two minutes. Lincoln's brief speech remains the most stirring in American history.

Civil War Reunions Serving in the Civil War was the defining period in the lives of most soldiers on both sides of the conflict. Not surprisingly, regimental reunions were held for many years afterwards. This is a photo of Confederate veterans meeting in McKinney, Texas sometime during the first decade of the twentieth century. The last major get-together took place in Gettysburg in 1938 where elderly veterans from both armies mingled. From all accounts, it was a moving sight.

Gettysburg 75th Anniversary 1938 A handful of surviving Civil War veterans from both the North and the South reunited in Gettysburg in 1938 to mark the 75th anniversary of that titanic battle. Here are some films of the goings-on. They are all heroes in my estimation.
