The AP at Gettysburg: Capturing what Lincoln wrote and said
Presenter: Valerie Komor, director, AP Corporate Archives
The Associate Press
On Nov. 19, 1863, the Associated Press engaged a young reporter from nearby Harrisburg to cover Abraham Lincoln's address in Gettysburg, Pa. Joseph Ignatius Gilbert was just 20 years old but his reporting would influence the ages. Valerie Komor will detail Gilbert's coverage of the speech, drawing comparisons to Lincoln's own text, and revealing what the contrast tells us about Abe's composition process and speaking style. Learn, too, how Lincoln came to favor the AP version when making his own copies of the Gettysburg Address.
