Tulane Law School takes the Gettysburg challenge

November 18, 2013

Documentary filmmaker Ken Burns calls President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address of Nov. 19, 1863, "some of the most stirring words ever spoken."

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Lincoln’s enduring speech that began with "Four score and seven years ago," Burns and other partners have urged Americans to recite the address, study it and use the occasion to “more fully understand our democracy and our freedom.”

Tulane Law School took the challenge to "Learn the Address."

Twenty-one students, faculty and staff members — including LLM students from Australia and Germany — volunteered to recite the Gettysburg Address. Watch and enjoy their reflection of the Tulane Law School community. Then try to memorize the address, too.
