Today is the 160th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s immortal Gettysburg Address, still a clarion call for defending our nation from its internal enemies even today.
The famous Battle of Gettysburg, the great Union victory that was “the bloodiest single battle” of the Civil War but also began turning the tide for an ultimate victory against the Confederacy and slavery, occurred on July 1-3, 1863. Months after that battle, on Nov. 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln came to Gettysburg to dedicate a cemetery for the war dead. Facing an exhausted, sorrowful crowd, Lincoln delivered ten sentences that made history.
We are a new generation of patriots, and we too must answer Lincoln’s call.
