Some College Students Don't Know about the Gettysburg Address

November 20, 2013 - 11:02 AM

Tuesday was the 150th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. This Civil War era speech is held up as one of the most important pieces of oratory ever written and cemented the legacy of Abraham Lincoln as one of our greatest presidents.

It used to be that every child learned about the Address in elementary school. Apparently, that's changed. When MRCTV went to a college campus to find out what students knew about the speech, we found that it wasn't as widely celebrated - or even recognized - among younger Americans as it used to be.
