The anniversary of the Gettysburg Address and the Dedication of the Gettysburg National Cemetery formally became Dedication Day by a joint resolution of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, on November 19, 1946. Each year since 1938, the Lincoln Fellowship of Pennsylvania has commemorated Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and rededicated Gettysburg National Cemetery where Lincoln spoke on this date. Today, co-sponsors with the Lincoln Fellowship include the Gettysburg National Military Park, Gettysburg Foundation, and Gettysburg College.
