November 16, 2013: Breaking Down the Gettysburg Address Line by Line, with Troy Harman

Dissecting the Gettysburg Address uncovers a profound understanding of enlightenment philosophy, Evangelical Christianity, ancient symbolism, gender history along with the promises and pitfalls of democracy. In many ways, the address capsulizes American History within the context of Western thought.

November 17, 2013:  Millennium of Glory: Edward Everett and the making of his Gettysburg Address, with Chris Gwinn

Edward Everett was one of the most prominent American statesmen and orators of his day. Though overshadowed by Abraham Lincoln's immortal Gettysburg Address, the two hour oration Everett composed for the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery ranks as one of the towering achievements of his life. Who was this man and what did he hope to say that November day in 1863?

November 18, 2013:  Lincoln Under God at Gettysburg, with Chuck Teague

Our 16th President carefully crafted his Gettysburg Address to read verbatim at the dedication of the Soldiers National Cemetery. Yet on the platform he was inspired to add two words he would have avoided prior to the Civil War. The story behind his change in perspective is little-known but important in appreciating Lincoln’s emerging faith, and the impact Gettysburg had upon him.

These lectures are free and open to the public.  For more information, please visit the website.

Biography of Professor Hancock:  
Scott Hancock grew up as an army brat before getting his B.A. from Bryan College, a small Christian liberal arts school, in Dayton TN in 1984. He spent the next 14 years working in group homes with teenagers at risk before changing careers. He received his Ph.D. in Early American History from the University of New Hampshire in 1999, taught in Alabama for two years, and then came to Gettysburg College in 2001, where he is currently associate professor of History and Africana Studies.  His scholarly interests focus on the African American experience from the mid-seventeenth century to just before the Civil War.  His work often involves considering African Americans’ engagement with the law in the north, and incorporates other disciplinary perspectives such as law & society and geography.  He is particularly interested in how black interaction with the law, from small disputes in lower courts to escaping via the underground railroad, shaped constitutional law, legal ideologies, black identity and U.S. society.  Some of his recent work has appeared in the anthologies Paths to Freedom, We Shall Independent Be, and Slavery, Resistance, Freedom and the journal Civil War History.

This special program sponsored by For the Cause Productions and the Gettysburg National Military Park honors those who fought for our nation as the U.S. Colored Troops during the Civil War. The event features a keynote speaker and wreath laying.

Bliss Farm
Gettysburg National Military Park
Gettysburg, PA 17325
During this country’s most defining moment, the American Civil War, 620,000 soldiers died, many of whom fought on the battlefields within the JTHG National Heritage Area. As a living commemoration for their individual and combined sacrifices, the Living Legacy Project will plant or dedicate one tree for each who died along the 180-mile Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Scenic Byway from Gettysburg to Monticello.
 
In fifty years times, during the bi-centennial of the Civil War the Living Legacy Project will be considered the finest example of homage in our country.  We believe this is the time to create and implement a living legacy for those who gave “the last full measure”, many of whom have never been honored. 
 
Be a part of this powerful project in Gettysburg for the dedication of 150 trees being planted in honor of the 150th commemoration of the most enduring speech ever given in America – the Gettysburg Address.  Join us for a tree planting ceremony on November 19th:

Meet Lucy Cadwallader - Gettysburg Gift Center at the Gettysburg Heritage Center 717-334-6245
297 Steinwehr Avenue
Gettysburg, PA 17325

Lucy Cadwallader has a unique way of reaching across time and tying families together.  Through the art of Victorian hair jewelry, Lucy is able to take the hair of loved ones and create intricate pieces of jewelry. Jewelry of all kinds such as bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and brooches can be created using human, or horse hair.

Hair jewelry can be dated back to the 1500's. These early pieces were worn to remind people of their mortality. Over the years, hair jewelry has gone in and out of style as many fashions do.  The meaning and symbolism has also changed over time and the jewelry is now a means to keep loved ones close to us. At the time of the American Civil War, hair jewelry became popular once more as women wore the hair of husbands and sons in brooches and lockets, while soldiers may have a watch chain made from the hair of a loved one back at home.

The painstaking process of creating a piece of hair jewelry can take anywhere from 8-10 hours or days depending on the size and detail of the piece. The process begins by sorting the hair, counting the hair, and then tying the strands into groups.  From there the work is done on a circular table with the findings being attached after the piece is set.
