Screenshot 15 Google project shows Abraham Lincolns handwritten Gettysburg Address, on the 150th anniversary

150 years ago today, Abraham Lincoln delivered what would become known as one of the greatest speeches in US history. The Gettysburg Address, at the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, was used by Lincoln to inspire a country torn by civil war.

Now, Google has introduced three new exhibits on the Google Cultural Institute that focus specifically on Lincoln and the 272 words from his famous speech that day in 1863. You can browse high-res digital incarnations of all five copies of the addresses, handwritten by Lincoln himself. And you can read about why there were five versions, peruse multimedia exhibits put together by Lincoln enthusiasts, and more.
