This Dedication Day, Tuesday, November 19, marks the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and The Patriot-News urges those who plan to visit to start planning now.
From The Patriot:
The ceremony - featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War historian James McPherson - will begin at 10 a.m. and last approximately 90 minutes.
President Barack Obama has been invited to attend, and if he does, additional security measures will be in place.
The event is free and open to the public, but security will be tight. People planning to attend should get there early. Security screening at the cemetery entrances will begin at 7:30 a.m. Screening will take place at every cemetery gate. No backpacks, large bags, tripods, chairs or parcels will be permitted into the cemetery.
