November 19, 2013 is the 150th anniversary of the two minute speech of President Abraham Lincoln. The occasion was the dedication of part of the Gettysburg Battlefield as a National Cemetery.  The battle at Gettysburg had happened 4 months before in July 1863.   Mr. Edward Everett was the  featured speaker that day because he was the most polished and profound orator in the country.  He spoke for 2 hours, and by all accounts gave a thorough speech .  Then Mr. Lincoln rose to speak and did  so for a mere two minutes. He spoke to the heart of the matter to honor the fallen Union Soldiers, to preserve the union of the United States, and to redefine the purpose of the war.  Later Mr. Everett told Mr. Lincoln that he(Lincoln)  was able to say more in two minutes than he (Everett) did in two hours.
