Abraham Lincoln

A copy for a good cause
horizontal rule
Cornell University Library’s copy of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address is one of five known copies in Lincoln's hand, and the only copy owned by a private institution. The four other copies are owned by public institutions: two at the Library of Congress, one at the Illinois State Historical Library, and one in the Lincoln Room at the White House.

Cornell University Library’s copy is the only one accompanied by a letter from Lincoln transmitting the manuscript and by the original envelope addressed and franked by Lincoln.
