A Perfect Tribute – by Mary Raymond Shipman Andrews


After delivering an address at the dedication ceremony of the cemetery at Gettysburg, on 19 November 1863, President Abraham Lincoln is disappointed in the crowd’s seeming lack of enthusiasm. Later, a young Southern soldier, wounded in battle and dying, unconscious of the stranger’s identity, regales him with the newspaper’s accounting of the eloquent speech. He reassures the address’s author that the crowd’s lack of ovation was because they were too much in awe to move or speak.
