President Abraham Lincoln gave on of the most remembered speeches of all time after the Battle of Gettysburg on November 19th, 1863. The speech focussed on the reassurance of human equality, the national purpose, and the declaration of independence. The address was little over two minutes but remains to be one of the most influential presidential speeches ever recorded. Many people haven’t seen a photo of this speech, and if you look closely you can see the president indicated by the red arrow.
