laphamsquarterly:

One of three photographs that show Abraham Lincoln arriving at Gettysburg for the consecration of the Soliders’ National Cemetery. Lincoln arrived around noon, and the headliner for the event was Edward Everett, who spoke for more than two hours. 

When Everett had finished, Lincoln got up and delivered the 272-word Gettysburg Address, which took about two minutes.

I find this completely spellbinding. Just imagine.
