Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Tuesday will mark the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. To celebrate the occasion, President Lincoln's Cottage will host D.C. poet laureate Dolores Kendrick, who will deliver the famed address at 10:30 a.m.
Following the poet's performance, school groups, veterans and active duty military members will gather on the steps of the cottage to recite the speech hourly from 10:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Participation in this program is free, but pre-registration is required here.
