ADULT ACTIVITIES AT THE LIBRARY
Lincoln at Gettysburg and the Gettysburg Address – Thursday November 20 @ 7:00 p.m.
“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal…” These lines that start the Gettysburg Address are some of the most memorable words ever uttered by an American President and the speech itself was and still is a masterpiece. Historical re-enactor Mike Jesberger will be our guide as we travel to Gettysburg with President Lincoln in November 1863 to dedicate this most honored battlefield. Mike will present some amazing and little known facts about this great speech, what really happened at Gettysburg on that November day and our most beloved President. Registration starts on Monday October 20.
