Join us on Monday, October 4, at 2:00 p.m. for Lincoln on the Gettysburg Address. The audience will enjoy hearing a first-hand account from Abraham Lincoln himself of the genesis and development of his famous speech. He provides background and context to the familiar phrases, from “Four score and seven years ago” to “government of the people, by the people, for the people”, and many more in between. He explains how he wrote his speeches, thus debunking a common myth about when and how he wrote this, his most famous, one. In fact, the audience will essentially witness him create his speech over the period of the program before their very eyes. This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Milford Memorial Library, Friends of the Spirit Lake Library, and Friends of the Arnolds Park Library.
