Experience the power of Abraham Lincoln's simple yet profound speech that redefined the purpose of the United States. Leading historians consider the circumstances surrounding the historic event, including General Meade's victory at the battle of Gettysburg and Lincoln's desire to renew American spirits after two years of bloody civil war. Stressing the influence of the Declaration of Independence on the address, the program traces a line through history from the founding of America through our nation's first true test of unity.
