No Fail Here: The Back Story to Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address

November 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

In the midst of our Civil War, with no end in sight, why wasn’t Lincoln invited as the keynote speaker at Gettysburg and why did he accept the secondary role to make only a “few appropriate remarks?” John Fitzpatrick, an attorney, licensed Battlefield Guide Emeritus at Gettysburg and former U.S. Marine Corps Officer, will talk about the enormous personal, political, and policy pressures impacting the President and how this leader overcame them to present a short, masterful dedication.
