Here at the National Cemetery President Abraham Lincoln gave one of the greatest speeches of mankind. At this spot I personally feel that Divine Providence spoke through President Lincoln. He came here just months after the battle, the war still going to speak for just about two minutes. The Gettysburg Address set a standard that no one has equaled before or since. I strongly recommend reading a book by Garry Wills "Lincoln at Gettysburg".
