Come see the Gettysburg Address

Seeing and reading Cornell’s original Gettysburg Address — held by President Lincoln, with the words carefully penned by his own hand — is a profound and moving experience.

The Library is celebrating this national treasure by making the original document widely available during the exhibition, Remembering Lincoln at Gettysburg, to encourage visitors to experience the real thing.

The manuscript is on display this week: Monday, Nov. 18 through Friday, Nov. 22, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 23, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

A high-quality facsimile will be on display for the remainder of the exhibition, which runs now through Dec. 20 and includes a plethora of original Lincoln documents and Civil War artifacts.
