Celebrating the 150th Anniversary of the Gettysburg Address

Today marks the 150th anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s historic Gettysburg Address, originally delivered on November 19, 1863. In honor and commemoration of this anniversary, documentarian Ken Burns launched a public outreach campaign to encourage everyone from religious leaders to politicians to actors to activists to record themselves reciting the famous words of the address.

View this submission from Rabbi David Saperstein, director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism - plus dozens more, from Senator Marco Rubio to actress Alyssa Milano - at LearntheAddress.org, the portal for the new project by Ken Burns.
