Time: 3:30 pm
Seminary Ridge Museum and Education Center
111 Seminary Ridge
Codie Eash, SRMEC Director of Education and Museum Operations, will lead an indoor presentation as part of our 160th Gettysburg Address Anniversary on the Ridge in “‘That Marvelous, Undying Utterance’: Abolitionists’ Reflections on the Gettysburg Address.”
Though the Gettysburg Address is not always thought about as an abolitionist document, many antislavery activists saw the speech as evidence of Abraham Lincoln’s insistence that emancipation was the primary cause for which U.S. soldiers fought and died. Join Codie to explore its impact on one of 19th-century America’s most outspoken and effective social groups.
Meet at the Valentine Hall Auditorium, located in the building next to the Museum.
Free to the public.
