President Abraham Lincoln delivered his famous Gettysburg Address November 19, 1863 to dedicate the national cemetery there following the bloody Battle of Gettysburg the previous July. This November 19, exactly 153 years later, the Lincoln Memorial Shrine will host a special morning of Civil War-era music and recitation of Lincoln’s speech by famed Lincoln Presenter Robert Broski. Returning to the Lincoln Memorial Shrine for the event are the acclaimed Mountain Fifes & Drums from Lake Arrowhead, and Redlands’ own Camp Carleton Cornet Band. The musical extravaganza is a great experience for anyone interested in music and history!
