Have you watched Ken Burns’ documentary, The Address? The film tells the story of a boys’ school in Vermont where each year students are encouraged to practice, memorize, and recite the Gettysburg Address.
Burns challenged all Americans to learn the address by heart, just as the students did. I’ve been practicing and am proud to say I can now join the ranks of those who have met the challenge! To celebrate, I’ve designed and illustrated a booklet on the speech. You can download a free copy here.
Memorize the Gettysburg Address yourself! It’s only 272 words — it’s good for your brain, and helps us to remember an important part of American history.
