Here is the only known audio recording of a person who heard Abraham Lincoln deliver the Gettysburg address. William V. Rathvan was nine years old in 1863; he recorded his memories in 1938.

The photo below is (I think) the only known photo of Lincoln at Gettysburg.

    I’ve heard the audio recording before. Very cool! But I havent’t seen this photo before. Where did you find it?

  • Google Images: “Lincoln at Gettysburg.”
