An interesting addition to any Gettysburg collection, I have read Lincoln's remarks in many volumes, but before obtaining this reprint had only ever read that Mr Everett was the keynote speaker and President Lincoln had been asked to attend and make a few appropriate remarks. Serious students of the civil war will recognize the factual errors in parts of Mr Everett's address, but we have the benefit of hindsight and considerably more reference material at our disposal, including reports and records from the Confederacy which were certainly were not available to the speaker. While certainly referring to his own speech with the line "the world will little note nor long remember what we say here," President Lincoln was at once very wrong and highly accurate. President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address is certainly one of the most studied speeches in American history, but it took me over 20 years of reading about the civil war before I had both the interest and opportunity to read Mr Everett's speech.
