Gettysburg: An Animal-Lover's Tour of the Battlefield
The Gettysburg Battlefield is a favorite place for locals to walk their dogs. And 151 years ago, it wasn't all that different, as soldiers kept a menagerie of pets with them on campaign.
Animals at Gettsburg Now
Gettysburg Address! A dedication ceremony was planned and famed orator and former Harvard President Edward Everett was to be the featured speaker. President Lincoln was asked to speak as an after thought and had only about two weeks to prepare his remarks.
Approximately 15,000 people were on hand to hear Everett's two hour speech and Lincoln's two minute speech was over before most in the crowd realized he had even begun.
