Gettysburg, PA is the location of the most famous and important Civil War Battle. The battle lasted three days, July 1-3, 1863. The battle was pivotal in the war. Between 46,000 and 51,000 soldiers from both armies were casualties in the three-day battle. Several months later Gettysburg attorney David Wills was appointed to oversee the contruction of the Soldier's National Cemetery, a final resting place for the Union dead.

On November 18, 1863, President Lincoln arrived in Gettysburg and while staying with David Wills it is believed that Lincoln completed his final draft of the Gettysburg Address. On November 19, Mr. Edward Everett served as the main speaker of the dedication, with Lincoln delivering the Gettysburg Address.
