The 155th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address

By Rebecca Price Janney, Nov 19 2018 02:04PM

Today marks the 155th anniversary of one of American history’s greatest, and shortest, speeches. Maybe part of its greatest is due to its brevity! In today’s podcast I share a story about the event which you may not have heard before. Anchor.fm/rebeccapricejanney


Have you ever been to the Gettysburg battlefield? I have, and what a moving experience it is. I also had “skin in the game”—my two times great grandfather was there, with the Pennsylvania 153rd. I salute you, Israel Kocher!


Can you recite the first line of the Gettysburg Address from memory?
