On this day in 1863, Pres. Lincoln delivers the Gettysburg Address as part of a dedication ceremony for a national ceremony in that city. The New York Times hardly mentions Lincoln or his speech in its account of the dedication, leaving us with confirmation that (then and now) the press often overlooks what’s truly significant and memorable:

The ceremonies attending the dedication of the National Cemetery commenced this morning by a grand military and civic display, under command of Maj. Gen. Coucs. The line of march was taken up at 10 o’clock, and the procession marched through the principal streets to the Cemetery, where the military formed in line and saluted the President. At 11-1/4 the head of the procession arrived at the main stand. The President and members of the Cabinet, together with the chief military and civic dignitaries, took position on the stand. The President seated himself between Mr. Seward and Mr. Everett after a reception marked with the respect and perfect silence due to the solemnity of the occasion, every man in the immense gathering uncovering on his appearance….

Mr. Everett then commenced the delivery of his oration, which was listened to with marked attention throughout. [The oration of Mr. Everett will be found on our second page.]
