The words Abraham Lincoln spoke at the dedication of the Soldiers' National Cemetery at Gettysburg, from "Four score and seven years ago," to "government of the people, by the people, for the people," echo in the American conscience. Many books have been written about the Gettysburg Address and yet, as Lincoln scholar Gabor Boritt shows, there is much that we don't know about the speech. Here he reconstructs what really happened in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, on November 19, 1863, tearing away a century of myths, lies, and legends.
