The Gettysburg Address is considered one of the greatest speeches ever given. It is short (273 words, 10 sentences) and lasted only 3 minutes when given.

In this podcast I include a few facts you may not have known about the Address. It’s also interesting to note that after giving the Gettysburg Address Lincoln got fairly sick. He recovered but one of the reasons that people were so impressed with his speech that day was the weariness and sadness with which he gave the speech. Come to find out, he was mainly just sick 🙂

This podcast is only 7 minutes long.
