Mr. Lincoln's Trail: A Walking Tour

The Gettysburg Address is recognized not only as one of Lincoln's greatest speeches but as one of the great pieces of rhetoric in the English language. 

President Lincoln arrived in Gettysburg on November 18, 1863 at the Historic Gettysburg Railroad Station and walked the short distance to the house of David Wills where he stayed the evening before delivering the Address at ceremonies dedicating the Soldiers' National Cemetery.

Visitors to Gettysburg can now walk in Lincoln's footsteps using Mr. Lincoln's Trail: A Walking Tour a brochure authored by Dr. Brad Hoch, Advisor to the Chair of the Pennsylvania Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission. The brochure is online here

A video about the Historic Gettysburg Railroad Station and the Lincoln Flag exhibit, produced by the PA ALBC and narrated by Dr. Hoch, is available for viewing here.
