Witness a re-enactment of the President Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address on Saturday, November 2 in Evergreen.
On November 19, 1863, President Lincoln attended the dedication ceremony at a Gettysburg, Pennsylvania cemetery containing thousands of soldier graves. The address that he gave defined the meaning of the Civil War, affirmed a new meaning for American democracy and inspired future generations of Americans. John Voehl, a lifetime member of the Association of Lincoln Presenters, will give the address. Voehl will also describe Lincoln’s thoughts while writing the speech and the influence it had on the country. The program will begin at 2 p.m. at the Timbervale barn, next to Hiwan Homestead Museum at 4208 S. Timbervale Dr. The event is sponsored by Jefferson County Historical Society and Hiwan Homestead Museum.
Registration is required. The entry fee is $8.
To add to the Civil War atmosphere of the event, the 1st Colorado Volunteer Infantry and other Civil War re-enactment units will set up an encampment in Heritage Grove, the grounds of the Museum. They will give an array of demonstrations relating to the Civil War from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is no charge to visit the encampment.
