Mel Maurer is past president of the Cleveland Civil War Roundtable, now its Historian, will share his talk about the real story of how Lincoln wrote the Gettysburg Address – no, he didn’t write it on the back of an envelope. The talk examines how Lincoln thought and wrote, taking you to Gettysburg that historic November 19, 1863 to hear his greatest speech – maybe the greatest speech ever – and the reaction to it. Following the program stay to enjoy ice cream sundaes.
